SYRACUSE, NY – The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) announced today the rollout of a new, convenient tool to monitor the status of drive-up parking availability at Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR). Travelers now have the ability – 24 hours a day – to see the drive-up parking status of each parking lot at the airport by visiting the airport’s parking webpage.
“This is all about making our customer’s travel day a little easier before they even leave for the airport,” said SRAA Chief Commercial Officer Jason Mehl. “These near-real-time parking status updates will eliminate any guesswork – and hopefully a little stress as well – from the ground transportation portion of our travelers’ experience.”
Airport patrons are also encouraged to explore the pre-book parking option the airport rolled out last year. This service offers customers the ability to guarantee a spot in their desired parking lot weeks – or even months – prior to their trip. It’s important to note these premium pre-book parking spaces represent only a small fraction of the overall parking capacity at the airport. The vast majority of parking capacity is intended for drive-up parking.
500 new parking spaces were recently created as part of the ongoing Surface Parking Lot Expansion Project (part of the much larger, multi-year Parking/Landside Redevelopment Project). These spaces can and will be activated as parking demand dictates and will be reflected on the parking webpage.
This parking capacity expansion will support the anticipated uptick in travelers during the Christmas to New Year’s holiday stretch. As air travel rebounds to pre-pandemic levels, SYR travelers are reminded to arrive to the airport two hours prior to their scheduled departure. This is especially important during the busy departure windows of 4:30 am – 6:00 am, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, and 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
