In just a few days the Ithaca Tompkins International Airport will offer two daily flights to John F. Kennedy International Airport via Delta Air Lines. The CRJ-900 regional jets, which have a seating capacity of 75, will feature first-class options and Wi-Fi.
“We are thrilled to offer flights to JFK beginning next week. Our community has expressed its desire for this destination for some time now, so this is fantastic news for ITH and our traveling public,” said Airport Director Roxan Noble. “Delta’s new, twice daily JFK service not only provides easy access to New York City but also plugs into Delta’s vast Domestic and International route network in JFK, providing seamless connecting options to get Ithaca customers where they need to go,” added General Manager of Network Planning at Delta Air Lines, Caitlin Bradbury.
From JFK, Delta and its partners offer service to 91 destinations in 30 countries, including ten flights to Los Angeles, eight to London, eight to San Francisco, and five to Orlando.
“This shift in service to fly directly to JFK expands where people can connect to locations around the world and offers easy access to New York City,” said Shawna Black, Chairwoman of the Tompkins County Legislature. “The move to JFK with larger aircraft increases service and access to New York City and connections to hundreds of destinations nationally and internationally. This is great for our community as we recharge and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic,” added Heather McDaniel, President of the Tompkins County Air Service Board.
