Niagara Falls International Airport (IATA: IAG, ICAO: KIAG, FAA LID: IAG) is a joint civil-military public-use airport located four miles (6 km) east of the central business district of Niagara Falls, in Niagara County, New York, United States. Owned and operated by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, the airport shares its runways with the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.

Niagara Falls International handles airline services, general aviation and military aircraft of all sizes. A new terminal building was opened in 2009.

History

Niagara Falls International Airport was opened in 1928 as a city-owned municipal airport with four crushed-stone runways. During World War II, the United States Army Air Forces assumed control of the airport and upgraded its facilities to be used as an Army Air Force base. After the war, the base became a Reserve and National Guard installation, and then an Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard installation in 1947 following the establishment of the U.S. Air Force as independent service. Civilian aviation operations also resumed during the post-war period under a joint-use arrangement.

Military Facilities

Today, the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station is home to the Air Force Reserve Command's 914th Airlift Wing (914 AW) flying the C-130 Hercules and the New York Air National Guard's 107th Airlift Wing (107 ARW) which shares the 914th AW's C-130 aircraft. Both wings are operationally gained by the Air Mobility Command (AMC). The main runway was extended to over 9,000 feet (2,743 m) in 1959 to handle larger military aircraft, and was extended again in 2003 to its current length of 9,829 feet (2,996 m). For all practical purposes, the facility is a small Air Force base.

Both the 914 AW and 107 ARW number in excess of 1,100 military personnel each (over 2,200 total): full-time Active Guard and Reserve (AGR) and Air Reserve Technicians (ART), as well as "traditional" part-time Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard personnel.

The New York Army National Guard also maintains an Army Aviation Support Facility at the station in support of operational Army flying units, both fixed-wing and rotary-wing.

The Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station was included in the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission recommendations issued by the Department of Defense on May 13, 2005. If the BRAC committee, the President, and Congress had approved all of the recommendations, it would have resulted in the closure of the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station. However, due to a local grassroots campaign by families and associates of affected military personnel, coupled with a united political effort involving Republican and Democratic congressional representatives and other politicians including both US Senators from New York, the BRAC recommendation regarding this base was largely overturned and the base will remain open for the foreseeable future. Excluding several New York Air National Guard facilities that are "nominally" under "state control," the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station is the last major U.S. Air Force installation in the State of New York and the largest U.S. federal facility in the region.

Commercial Flight Operations

From 1980 to 1984, commercial airline service was available at the airport via Air Niagara, a post-Deregulation airline with service to Newark Airport. Empire Airlines also served the airport at one time, with service to Syracuse. Kiwi International briefly served the airport in 1998.

In March 2007, Direct Air began airline service to Myrtle Beach International Airport. In September 2009, a new terminal complex was completed to better service existing air service and is intended as an incentive to return scheduled regional and domestic passenger service to the airport.

Facilities

Niagara Falls International Airport lies within Class D airspace and has an operating FAA control tower.

The airport covers an area of 1,067 acres (432 ha) which contains three paved runways:

  • Runway 6/24: 5,189 x 150 ft (1,582 x 46 m), Surface: Asphalt
  • Runway 10L/28R: 9,829 x 150 ft (2,996 x 46 m), Surface: Asphalt/Concrete
  • Runway 10R/28L: 3,973 x 75 ft (1,211 x 23 m), Surface: Asphalt

Passenger terminal

On September 2, 2009, Niagara Falls International Airport dedicated its new two-story state-of-the-art 69,430-square-foot (6,450 m) terminal with two gates. The terminal consists of one jetway and one ground-loading gate and accommodates aircraft ranging up to a Boeing 747 in size. The exterior is designed to reflect Niagara Falls' water flow. Total project cost was an estimated $42.5 million, $31.5 million for the terminal and $11 million for runway apron and landside improvements.
