Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Syracuse Hancock International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small airport with two terminal areas (North Terminal A and South Terminal B) and two concourses (North Concourse B and South Concourse A)
  • After airport restaurants and shops close for the night, vending machines are the only in-airport snack option. Plan ahead and purchase your food and drinks before the concessions close.
  • The airport provides free WiFi. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to landside only. Passengers sleeping airside will be required to go back to landside until security reopens, and will need to clear security again to re-enter.
  • Comfortable couches are scattered throughout Level 1, near the rental car area, baggage claim and airline ticketing counters.
  • Comfortable couches can also be found on Level 2, but have a sleep mask handy, as one reviewer mentioned that the lights are bright up there!
  • Have a travel blanket handy to keep warm against the A/C in summer or the cold air during winter!
  • The airport is quiet at night. One reviewer mentioned that there were no overhead announcements. However, have ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones headphone handy in case the situation has changed!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
