As a major international and national gateway to Cornell, Ithaca College, TC3 and other major employers, Ithaca Tompkins International Airport has three airlines, a fixed based operator (Taughannock Aviation Corporation), reliable ground transportation and a deep commitment to providing exemplary customer service. Ithaca Tompkins International Airport is a vital community asset located just ten minutes from Cornell and downtown Ithaca. We offer one-stop connectivity to most major U.S. cities and world capitals. Our mission is to provide a safe, efficient, clean, and enjoyable facility which exceeds the expectations of the traveling public, the airport tenants, and other airport users. In October of 2018, Governor Cuomo announced groundbreaking of a $24.7 million expansion project of the Ithaca Tompkins International Airport, which was completed in December of 2019. The project expanded the terminal by over 50 percent and added amenities such as a new Café and Bar, an outdoor seating area, more gates and jet bridges, an indoor playground, conference rooms, a pet relief area and more. A new U.S. Customs Facility was also part of the expansion project, transitioning the airport from regional to international.
