"1. the 3 old gates are not being used anymore...." Correct
"2. that whole part of the terminal is being rebuilt in Jan. 05...." According to Islip Town yes, don't know the details though.
"3. the baggage claim is the same, as with the security..." Baggage claim yes, there is a new security area for the WN
"4. only WN
uses the 3 new gates....." For now yes.
"5. will WN
return to the 3 old gates when they are rebuilt....." Don't know.
"6. is WN
funding for that also....." No Islip Town tax payers.
"7. when will it be done...." No completion date has been announced.
"8. when its done, will they connect the 3 new gates with the 3 old ones...." No details have been given by Islip.
"P.S.- since im flying out of ISP
on Aug 25, on WN
, will i be in hte new terminal"........ Yes
"P.s.s- is the other side also being redone." The old building along with the two gate wings are to be redone.
While I'm thrilled ISP
is expanding I cannot believe they named the new terminal after his royal ness Pete McGowan the Islip town Supervisor. This guy’s ego wasn't already big enough. Now only if they'd just reopen the spotting area.
