SYRACUSE, NY – The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) announced today that Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) is increasing enforcement of its active curbline policy. This comes as a result of unprecedented growth in passenger traffic.

An active curbline means that vehicles are not allowed to stand or park at the curbline and wait for passengers. Those waiting for passengers to arrive are encouraged to wait in the Cell Phone Lot – free of charge – until contacted by the arriving passenger.

Anyone visiting SYR during peak hours can expect to see an increased police presence and subsequent enforcement of this policy. This effort serves as the first phase of a campaign to improve ground transportation safety and efficiency in light of the increased traffic.

“It’s one of those interesting problems to have – on one hand, we’re incredibly proud of our growth. On the other hand, that growth brings about new safety and efficiency concerns,” said

Jason Terreri, Executive Director. “We are absolutely committed to providing safe and efficient air travel to the residents of Central New York – and beyond. This increased enforcement of our active curbline policy is just step one in fulfilling that promise.”

Passenger traffic is up 12.9% for the first half of 2019 (January-June) over the same time period of 2018.
