Air Service Development

CenterState CEO recognizes the importance of connecting the region with the rest of the nation and the world in an interconnected, global economy. Convenient, affordable air service at Syracuse Hancock International Airport is a high-priority for CEO members.

CenterState CEO launched its Air Service Development efforts and the Fly Syracuse campaign in 2003. In partnership with the City of Syracuse, CenterState CEO works directly with airlines to attract new flights, reduce fares, and promote the use of Syracuse Hancock International Airport. Through 
Fly Syracuse campaigns, new flights and airport improvements are promoted to create public awareness and increase passenger traffic.

Thanks to these efforts, passengers at Hancock Airport have benefitted from reduced fares, additional service and new routes, and improved passenger amenities at the airport.

Recent airport improvements include the introduction of new computer workstations, new terminal television and flight status monitors, free wi-fi access throughout the terminal, and parking enhancements including EZ pass payment options.

Additional enhancements are underway at Hancock Airport, including recently completed security improvements and expansions. This project has created a larger, single access point to the north and south terminal piers; features new passenger amenities and additional space for concessions; and includes energy-efficient features that qualify for LEED-silver certification – making it one of the greenest airports in the nation.

Hancock Airport is served by all major network carriers, including:  Air Canada, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and US Airways, as well as low cost carriers, JetBlue Airways and Allegiant Air. Syracuse travelers can choose from more than 120 flights daily, with non-stop service to 17 destinations, including our newest non-stop flights to Myrtle Beach and Tampa/St. Petersburg, served by Allegiant Air, as well as Minneapolis-St. Paul, served by Delta Air Lines.
