John T. Carni, Director of Airport Operations and Interim Executive Director
Providing more than 2 million passengers annually with direct service to 24 destination, Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) is central New York’s gateway to the world. For many visitors, we are their first and last impressions of the region. We work tirelessly to provide the traveling public with safe, secure, convenient and affordable air travel.
Over the past year, SYR has seen unprecedented air service development. Recognizing the need to provide low cost, convenient, nonstop service to key markets and destinations, we will continue to pursue new air service opportunities. These include new markets, more frequency, additional capacity and better aircraft.
While pursuing further air service development, we will continue to promote Central New York as one of the largest markets in Upstate New York. Having undergone a recent $65 million Terminal Improvement Project, we feel confident in our role as the official greeters to those visiting Central New York. Whether travelers are visiting for business or purely for pleasure, the staff of the SRAA and Department of Aviation work 24/7 to ensure we are putting our best foot forward to welcome them to our region.
When you visit SYR, whether for the first time or as a return traveler, it is my sincere hope that you will enjoy our clean and comfortable terminal building, as well as our safe and secure airfield. We would like to thank the millions of passengers who have already done just that. With the needs of the traveling public of Central New York and beyond at the center of our focus, we look forward to bringing you new and expanded services in the future.
