Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Passenger traffic is soaring at Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport. In 2019, passenger traffic is up 11.5%, which made 2019 the busiest year in three decades.

In 2019, 2,583,193 passengers traveled through the airport. 

Officials with the airport cite a variety of factors for the increase.

“Our airline partners have added more flights – such as new daily, nonstop service on United to Denver and Allegiant’s new year-round, nonstop service to Sarasota-Bradenton. However, an often overlooked source of growth has been our legacy carriers electing to fly larger aircraft on existing routes,” said Executive Director Jason Terreri.
