Southwest Airlines Ending Syracuse Service in August


Southwest Airlines has informed the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) that they will cease operations at Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) on August 4, 2024. This news was part of a larger announcement the airline made Thursday regarding a widespread reduction of service across its network.

“While we are disappointed to hear this news, we recognize the challenges the airline is facing due to Boeing aircraft delivery delays and lack of available capacity,” said SRAA Executive Director Jason Terreri. “We appreciate Southwest leadership flying in to deliver the news in person yesterday. During this conversation, they shared our market was performing as expected for a new city. However, given the constraints of this new environment, the airline had to make a decision to reallocate existing aircraft to other priority markets.”

The SRAA will remain actively engaged with Southwest Airlines to determine a future date for the airline to relaunch service in Syracuse.
