Located in the same location as the old Observation Area, the Cell Phone Lot gives drivers picking up passengers a place to wait without blocking the curb line in front of the main terminal.
By using the Cell Phone Lot, guests can improve the flow of traffic and reduce congestion, particularly during peak periods.
There is no charge to park in the Cell Phone Lot, and anyone wishing to continue to use it as an observation area is free to do so.
Drivers are required to stay with their vehicles at all times while using the lot. Unattended vehicles are subject to ticketing.
To find the cell phone lot, please turn right at the traffic light and follow the signs for “Observation Area / Cell Phone Lot.”
Alternatively, guests can locate the cell phone lot by using the map featured, or by getting directions here.
SYR Airport now has an active curb line. This means that vehicles are not allowed to stand or park at our curb line and wait for passengers.
Signs are located on the curb line informing drivers of the active curb line and warning against standing or parking along side of it.
We strongly recommend those who are waiting for passengers to arrive at SYR to wait in our Cell Phone Lot – free of charge – until the arriving passengers contact them.
