Getting to Syracuse


Syracuse is located approximately 250 miles to the west of New York City (NYC). There are several ways to get to Syracuse from New York City. By Plane, By Train, and By Bus. Students flying in from an international departure city can choose to arrive at either La Guardia international airport or JFK ariport (both airports are located in New York City). However, we recommend that students should choose JFK International Airport since the two budget airlines that we will mention below only operate from this airport.
