New Niagara Airport Has Free WiFi But No Flights

If Pam and Jim’s wedding on The Office got you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, then a new airport wants to help you experience Niagara Falls for all its worth. The Niagara Falls International Airport is almost ready to go as the finishing touches are being completed on the almost $32 million terminal. The place is more than ready for visitors to arrive as the runway and jet bridge are designed to easily accommodate a Boeing 747—too bad there’s none scheduled to land anytime soon.

The new airport has some of our favorite airport amenities, including free WiFi. However, the best thing going for it is totally free airport parking. You’re welcome to swing your vehicle right up to the front of the airport without the need for any parking ticket, but if you’ve got a big SUV, you will need to use the adjoining lot because you’re just too darn big for the prime parking spots. There’s one problem with the new airport: there won’t be too many daily flights once it officially opens on December 11.

Right now the only daily service is on Direct Air, a discount public charter airline that shuttles people between Niagara Falls and Myrtle Beach. To make matters worse, there probably aren’t too many people dreaming of a vacation near a waterfall once the weather starts to dip below freezing. Local officials have put on their thinking caps in order to promote the area’s new airport and attract some new aviation business.

We’ve got to admit that the new airport sounds great and we would love to take in the new airport smell, but there’s another great airport just down the road. It’s the Buffalo Niagara International Airport—it even has Niagara in its name! We passed through the airport a couple years ago and it was clean, modern, and everything an airport should be, including having flights with major carriers. Okay so Buffalo's airport charges for WiFi in the terminal, but you can't win them all. Hopefully the area can handle two airports and the new Niagara Falls place can steal a little business from its big brother down the road.
