NFIA is an attractive alternative to currently congested major North American International airports. With its 10,825 ft. main runway, 5,850 ft. crosswind runway, 24-hour operation (no curfews), 24 hr. CFR service, excellent access to inspection agencies, and price competitive landing fees, the NFIA is ideally suited and strategically located to accommodate various types of aviation operations.
The close proximity of the airport to the Canada/USA border, its location just off a major highway, and its central location to the Canada and USA population base, offer great operational advantages. In addition, there is an excellent local labor force and the presence of over 300 freight forwarders in the airport vicinity makes freight operations a natural fit for this airport.

The Niagara region attracts more than 22 million visitors annually. The region is situated near the mighty Niagara Falls and along the Great Lake of Ontario – offering trophy freshwater sport fishing, romantic bed & breakfast getaways, wine tours, championship golf courses, gaming, world class entertainment and outdoor experiences that will encourage the whole family to get back to nature.
The mighty cascades are just one of the many adventures available to both thrill seekers and those a little less daring. Don a raincoat and trek into the base of the Falls at the Cave of the Winds, or jump aboard the Maid of the Mist and see what the Falls look like from the bottom up. Or, take a leisurely stroll through Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the country.
Other area attractions include the Aquarium of Niagara, Old Fort Niagara and the Seneca Niagara Casino. And what trip to the Falls would be complete without stopping by the Daredevil Museum and seeing first hand the barrels used by thrill seekers attempting to go over one of the Wonders of the World.
Development of the Niagara Falls International Airport is the catalyst for property opportunities in and around the facility. Successful operations are stimulating the need for warehousing, light manufacturing and assembly, and related services. A significant portion of the cargo arriving at the airport take advantage of foreign trade zone status and requisite component assembly.
The Niagara County Industrial Development Agency is readily available to assist in land acquisition, foreign trade zone advantages and financing.
Buffalo Niagara Enterprise provides development assistance to new and existing companies interested in the eight counties of Western New York, including everything from demographic information to tax incentives to site identification.

Niagara Falls International Airport does not operate any of the equipment needed to safely deplane passengers from air carrier aircraft and is, therefore, unable on its own to provide for the deplanement of passengers. Additionally airport personnel are not trained to assist in the deplanement of passengers using equipment owned or operated by air carriers or contract service providers. However, we have requested that each airline, ground handler and FBO operation on the airport provide us with a list of the equipment and resources they have for deplaning passengers and contact information. We will provide this inventory and contact information to airlines as soon as practicable after receiving requests from such airlines experiencing excessive tarmac delays at the contact number listed above.
The gates at Niagara Falls International Airport are under common use leases to air carriers and are controlled by the airport. We will work with our common use tenant air carriers to make gates and other facilities available to an air carrier seeking to deplane at a gate to the extent practicable.
Niagara Falls International Airport has defined sterile areas capable of accommodating limited numbers of international passengers. We will coordinate with local CBP officials to develop procedures that will allow international passengers who have not yet cleared United States Customs and Border Protection to be deplaned into these sterile areas to the extent practicable.
Niagara Falls International Airport will provide public access to its emergency contingency plan through one or more of the following means:
2035 Niagara Falls Blvd. Niagara Falls, NY 14304
