    Compared to larger airports you don't have to give yourself much time to check-in. If you are not checking bags you should only need to arrive 30-45 mins. before your flight

    SYR has the world's largest single blade snowplow. When a flight is delayed, it is *rarely* because of issues on our end. It's usually those amateurs down at EWR or PHL that can't handle a little snow

    Now that you've arrived in Syracuse - head straight to Dinosaur BBQ to treat yourself to the best BBQ in the US. If you're leaving, don't come back until the summer, unless you're an eskimo

    Great place to go to randomly greet people when they arrive home from their trip. Best if you come offering a hug with tears in your eyes.

    If you're an idiot who can't figure out how to remove a cellphone from your pocket at the security check, please stay home. I hate you.

    Early morning security lines are the worst. Don't think that you don't have to get here at the normal time interval just because it's a small airport.

    You can fly to NYC for a little more than it costs to take a taxi from the airport to downtown Syracuse #makescompletesense #highprofitmargin

    Be prepared to deal with drill sargeants in security

    Well, it's no Centro Transit Hub, but this airport gets you where you're going. Or rather, it gets you to the airport that will get you to where you are going.

    Make sure and stop by Cafe Kubal and get a delicious locally roasted cup of coffee. It's a Great locally owned business. It's directly across from security. Cheers!

    Most stress-free airport.

    I am proud of living in Syracuse but our airport is sooooo lacking! There's a game room with arcade games and literally 2 restaurants!

    Free wifi :-)

    This is by far the easiest airport to get through security! You don't need much time to check in and get through security. And the TSA people here are really nice! Welcome to Syracuse :)

    The Adirondack Pub is where it's at.

    Eat before you get here. Not a lot of food choices and everythig closes early. However, they do have vending machines and plenty of free outlets to charge your phone.

    If you have an evening flight security is super quick.

    Cafe Kubal, the best local coffee shop and cafe, is opening here Summer 2013! Check it out!

    Make sure you take your belt off and if you have a Nike running disc in your shoe take it out...the TSA here is perplexed by them...guess they don't exercise here.

    Security is fast, I fly out of here ~20 times a year and never had a problem.

    Bill M. · January 12, 2011

    Hint... It snows in Syracuse. Park in the INDOOR parking. Its only $2 more per day. WELL worth it.

    Brett A. · January 2, 2011
  • Shawn R.

    The new central security checkpoint is pretty slow compared to the two separate security checkpoints. Leave yourself a little bit of extra time.

    Shawn R. · July 9, 2013
  • Chuck M.

    Get here early. Security is slow but free wifi is a plus.

    Chuck M. · October 25, 2010
  • Valerie

    Great improvements! Now only one tsa line and it is 4x as long as what it used to be. If you're not priority, be prepared to wait... And wait... And wait.

    Incase you're not sure where you've landed, there's a sign

    Security takes their job VERY seriously here. Apparently bored and ready for a terrorist throw down

    Robin I. · June 26, 2011

    Eat first unless you like chicken fingers. Drink as you await the rapture.

  • Danny S.

    Free wifi small airport easy to navigate but not the most reliable... If ur flight isn't canceled or delayed pretty good airport

    Danny S. · February 18, 2011
  • Katie

    Be sure to get something to eat before your evening flight. Restaurants close around 7pm. Any delay and you're out of luck!

    Katie · May 17, 2010
  • Ismo S.

    This airport now sucks. The security wait has gone from less than 15 min to 1 hour or more now. I guess someone should get a promotion.

    Ismo S. · May 16, 2013
  • Ela L.

    Quick check in process, even during a holiday. Be ready to go outside to board your plane, though.

    Ela L. · November 17, 2012
  • Anthony S.

    Easily one of, if not THE worst security check-in in the country.

    Anthony S. · September 20, 2010
  • Thomas W.

    Parking is only about 8 dollars a day.

    Thomas W. · January 29, 2010
  • Anita P.

    New security check-in is in the center of the airport, not at each terminal anymore. Allow the standard 1 hour before departure or you'll be running to catch your flight.

    Get FRESH with TSA for No Raisin!

    Us airways is the worst ...

    Kayur P. · September 11, 2012
  • Roxy H.

    Very unreliable - most flights leaving here end up being delayed.

    Roxy H. · May 10, 2012
  • Brandon M.

    Check out the sweet museum halfway down the building with a life sized model of a cockpit!

    Brandon M. · August 10, 2011
  • Anastasia K.

    the fact that there is free wifi here is awesome bit the lack of food options makes waiting and delayed flights pretty miserable.

    Anastasia K. · November 1, 2010
  • Gracie C.

    Security is horrible. They make a big deal about little shit. Should probably invest in better technology so they don't have to unorganize a suitcase that took hours to accommodate.

    Baggage for united is the pits

    Andrea · January 3, 2010
  • Paul M.

    Look for Cafe Kubal here, just inside central security screening. It's guaranteed to be the airport's best coffee and food.

    Paul M. · July 11, 2013
  • Russ R.

    Don't eat at this airport. You're better off eating a pair of Crocs, and--let's be honest--that would make this world a better place.

    Russ R. · March 9, 2013

    Loves this airport! Stress-free!

    Carrie · June 9, 2012

    Enterprise is the best

    I know sometimes we all run late BUT Don't come here hungry- they only have a 2 cheesy restaurants..

    Yezenia F. · February 22, 2012
  • Toni 3.

    The people who work here are very nice. This is such a welcome treat when traveling. You do not find this in large airports.
