Ithaca Tompkins International Airport (ITH)

The first airport in Ithaca, also believed to be the second airport in New York State, was the Ithaca Municipal Airport, located near the inlet to Cayuga Lake, in an area that Cass Park now occupies. The Hangar Theatre made its home in the renovated municipal airport hangar right next to Cass Park.  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.
