SYRACUSE - Renovations are underway at Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport to transform it into a modern facility. Gov. Andrew Cuomo was in Syracuse today to announce the plans.
The $48.8 million construction project includes a wide-scale redesign and reconstruction of the terminal building, which will be expanded by 14,500 square feet.
The upgraded interior will have new amenities, better food and retail options, e-ticketing, updated ticket counters and baggage claim areas.
The project includes LED lighting, more than 25,000 square feet of glass windows, glass pedestrian bridges and energy efficient windows. Visitors will also be greeted by a 20-foot SYR sign outside the new terminal.
New York State will invest more than $34 million for the project. The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018.
