    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

    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

    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

    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

    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 :)

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
