Syracuse Hancock International Airport partners with RIT to unveil new retail lounge

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Syracuse Regional Aiport Authority (SRAA) has unveiled a new automated retail lounge at the Syracuse Hancock International Aiport (SYR) along with the help of a local college.

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) College of Art and Design worked with SRAA to develop this new automated retail lounge located on the first level of the airport, pre-security checkpoint.

The new retail lounge opened on Wednesday, Dec. 13, where attendees had the opportunity to hear brief speeches and enjoy samples from vendors whose offerings are featured in the new lounge.

Representatives from the SRAA, RIT College of Art and Design and Visit Syracuse all came to the grand opening.

This new lounge will be the first available before security and the second overall as another lounge from Escape Lounges opened this past summer and features a 2,800-square-foot lounge that accommodates up to 54 guests.

The escape lounge also features multiple local businesses crafted materials and produce, including unlimited, fresh, and locally sourced food options, and a full bar and coffee service.
