This transformation is expected to enhance the passenger experience and drive economic growth by establishing OGS as a regional transportation hub that will attract new travellers to the North Country in New York state.

As a result of these benefits, the project is supported by 18 million USD from the Governor’s 230 million USD Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Competition.

Governor Kathy Hochul said:

Our upstate airports are gateways that not only welcome travellers but also open the door to increased tourism and expanded opportunities for economic growth. Thanks to our Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Initiative, the Ogdensburg International Airport will get the improvements it needs to become a true, 21st Century travel destination that will attract new visitors and businesses to the North Country.

The modernisation project at Ogdensburg International Airport (OGS) has an estimated total cost of 21.5 million USD. It will:

  • Expand the airport’s check-in, ticketing and baggage drop-off areas
  • Construct a new canopy over the curbside drop-off/pick-up area
  • Install new passenger information display systems
  • Add additional restrooms
  • Expand the screening, concession and baggage claim areas
  • Upgrade security doors and sprinklers
  • Upgrade passenger Wi-Fi
  • Add new sanitation and water fill stations
  • Upgrade the disinfection treatment within the HVAC system
  • Construct an outdoor courtyard with tables, chairs, and planters
  • Install solar panels and electrical passenger vehicle/equipment charging stations

Ogdensburg International Airport’s terminal was constructed in 1980. It handled as many as 26,921 enplanements each year prior to the COVID-19 pandemic but now lacks adequate space to accommodate the growing passenger demand.
