Elevating Airspace Innovation

Listen | Watch | Read the Transcript

Syracuse Hancock International Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the country. Air traffic is up 20 to 25 percent compared to 2019, the airport’s busiest year on record... and the number of available airline seats in 2024 already exceeds 2023. And there are no signs of slowing down. 

But the Syracuse Hancock International Airport is not only expanding commercial air service. It’s also innovating in the space of advanced air mobility and uncrewed aerial systems through a partnership with NUAIR, one of CenterState CEO’s organizational partners.  Opened late last year, the NUAIR Center of Excellence is a hub for the organization’s work helping to integrate uncrewed aerial systems or UAS into the current airspace. 

On this episode of Talk CNY Season 2, presented by NBT Bank, Syracuse Hancock International Airport Executive Director Jason Terreri and NUAIR President and CEO Ken Stewart join Katie Zilcosky to talk about their new partnership and growing innovation in the air.
