There are daily flights to Ithaca from Philadelphia, Boston, and Charlotte. Or fly to Syracuse and take a shuttle (about 1.5 hours) to Ithaca.
Many students fly into New York metro area airports (Newark, JFK, or LaGuardia) and take a bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. From Port Authority, ShortLine/Coach USA runs to Cornell’s campus, and Greyhound stops at the Ithaca Bus Terminal on State Street. The Campus-to-Campus express bus service runs between Cornell's New York City and Ithaca campuses.
