The Syracuse Hancock International Airport is equiped with 2 VideoPhones for use by our deaf and hard of hearing passengers. One VideoPhone is located pre-security at the top of the escelators to the right of the checkpoint. The other VideoPhone is located post-security, to the left of the checkpoint.
Sorenson Video Relays Service® (SVRS®) empowers deaf and hard-of-hearing people who use American Sign Language (ASL) to place phone calls to hearing individuals. There is no cost to participants involved in SVRS calls. SVRS allows deaf individuals whose primary language is ASL to communicate in their native language rather than in text-based English or another secondary language. This allows for more full and complete expression through the use of facial expressions and body languages, which cannot be communicated in text.
Syringe Disposal Units
Syringe Disposal Units are located in all restrooms.
Pet Relief Areas
Pet relief areas are located at the entrance and exit of the parking garage and provide Clean-Up Bags.
