Public Involvement

The Department of Aviation at Syracuse Hancock International Airport is committed to involving the public in programs related to aviation/aerospace as often as possible. We offer an airport tour program, providing an average of 100 tours annually.

Tours are offered between 9AM – 4PM, Monday through Friday. The tours are specific to school age children (K-6) with a maximum of 35 people. Airport tours generally include the airline ticketing areas, the passenger screening process and our baggage claim area. After the tour, groups are welcome to have lunch in one of the airport’s conference rooms or outside in our Observation Area. With advance notice, it may also be possible to schedule a tour of the Syracuse Fire Department Airport Division.

If you are interested in scheduling a tour at the airport for your group or school, please fill out our Tour Request Form. The completed form can be mailed or faxed using the above information, or e-mailed to sweetlandj@syrairport.org.
