On September 1st, the Tompkins County Legislature unanimously approved changing the name of the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport to Ithaca Tompkins International Airport (ITH). The airport is a vital service within our community supporting our global community and local businesses by providing access to national and international destinations.
ITH announced that daily service to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) will replace the daily service to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). Larry Baum, Chairman of the Air Services Board, said that the CLT hub "will provide much more reliable service year-round and connects to many destinations in the US and around the world. As passenger counts increase, we’ll be seeing larger aircraft being used on this route."
