Syracuse International Airport Prepares for Winter Break Travelers

Syracuse, New York – Syracuse International Airport is preparing for increased passenger volume as local schools break for mid-winter recess. Anticipated increase in passenger volume departure days include February 16 – 19, 2018.

Airline and airport officials encourage passengers to arrive early, at least 2 hours prior to scheduled departure time.

In addition to increased volume, passengers will need to allow extra time due to construction inside the terminal. The center of the terminal is closed off to passengers as work continues on the Terminal Improvement Project.

Passengers needing to obtain a boarding pass or to check luggage should make sure to enter the terminal according to their airline location.

If passengers have a boarding pass and will not be checking luggage, they can enter at either end of the terminal and proceed directly to the B (Bridge) from the parking garage. They will take the passenger bridge directly to the security checkpoint.
