ITHACA, NY­ − Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport will be having a client appreciation week July 25th-July 31st to thank the community that travels in and out of the Ithaca Airport. The week will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 am on July 25th at the terminal following the two week closing of the airport for runway resurfacing.

We recognize the importance of giving back to the people that ensure our success. The client appreciation week will aim to strengthen relationships with the local community and to celebrate our passengers. It’s our way of high-fiving every single passenger who helped us transform into where we are today.

Community members and people traveling through the airport can expect to receive free food, and have the chance to win a variety of gifts from local businesses. Such as a one night stay at La Tourelle with breakfast for two and a $100 gift card to August Moon Spa, State Theater tickets, dinner at Coltivare, wine from local wineries, and much more. In addition airline vouchers will be given out to a select few, and celebratory flights sponsored by East Hill Flying Club will be given away as well.

Mike Hall, general manager, said “We recognize the inconvenience our runway closure for resurfacing caused our loyal travelers and want to welcome them back with a celebration of project completion and thanks for their support!”

In short, join us at Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport July 25th-31st and help us celebrate!
