Tompkins Regional Airport

Searching for flights from Ithaca was once a hassle, but thanks to Orbitz.com, you can now get flights from even the smallest airports. Orbitz.com offers deals and sales on flights leaving daily from Tompkins Regional Airport. Delta, United, and US Airways all offer flights across the U.S. from this airport.

Parking at Tompkins

The parking lots at the airport are divided into short-term and long-term parking. Short-term parking is available for periods of 24 hours or less, while long-term parking is suitable for those traveling for several days. You can park for up to one week in a long-term lot for just $30.

Getting Around Ithaca

You can take a cab to Tompkins Regional Airport and leave your car at home. University Taxi, Yellow Cab, and Cayuga Taxi all offer fares to and from the airport. You will pay a pickup fee and a small amount for each mile that the car drives, but the cost is often less than the fee you would pay for parking. The TCAT, which is the public transportation system, provides a second option for getting to the hotel. The bus only makes stops at specific areas in town, but the price of riding the bus is much less than renting a cab.

Where to Eat

The airport also has several vending machines and shops where you can find snacks and cold drinks while waiting for your flight. If you need low-cost flights, visit Orbitz.com.
