  • Hours

    Airport Terminal Hours: 4:30 am – 12:30 am. The airport passenger terminal is open to the public at approximately 4:00 AM and closes shortly after the last arriving flight, usually around midnight.

    Airport Hours: The airport runway is open 24 hours a day, but flights arriving overnight should call ahead to verify available services.

    Taughannock Aviation Services Hours: 6:00 am – 10:00 pm. Call (607) 257-7500 for late fly-ins.

    Recommended Arrival Time:

    Airlines recommend that passengers arrive at least 90 minutes prior to their departure time to be able to check in and complete the security screening process for an on-time departure.

    For early morning flights, typically between 5:30 and 7:00 AM, passengers should allow extra time due to the high volume of passengers and baggage being processed during these hours. It is important to allow extra time so that everyone can get through the screening process in a timely manner to avoid flight delays.  For more information, please contact your airline.

  • Social Media

    “Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” ― Anita Desai


    Like most people we are attached to our smartphones, especially while traveling. Today’s air passengers often look to social media as the go-to route for customer service interactions and information with airports around the world. For us, there’s a greater incentive than to satisfy needs and fix problems expressed on social. We love to do that and will continue for years to come, but what really connects us is the stories of people like you arriving and departing from our airport. Whether its for work, school or vacation we want you to get the best of your trip and then share that with the world. Thanks for making ITH part of your journey. Talk to us on FacebookTwitter, Instagram, and Tumblr -we’d love to hear from you.
