Named after a Greek Island with a decidedly more tropical atmosphere, Ithaca is a small town of many contrasts in itself, and private charter flights to the area attract vacationers, business travelers, college students, and more, despite the lack in Mediterranean climate.

While Ithaca is very much a college town, it’s home to several eclectic shops and restaurants, it’s deeply rooted in politics, and it’s surrounded by beautiful outdoor amenities, including several gorges, waterfalls, and greenspaces, making it an enjoyable visit via private jet for all sorts of travelers.

As a college town, Ithaca experiences an ebb and flow of mass matriculation during various times of the year, but it’s home to a vibrant community that offers more permanence than most college towns.

Ithaca is famous as the home to Cornell University, an Ivy League school hosting more than 20,000 students. Cornell excels in state-wide agricultural and veterinary research, and is the New York’s land-grant university. Ithaca College is another major institution of higher learning located just south of the city in the Town of Ithaca, adding even more to the educational atmosphere.

Ithaca features a humid continental climate, and is much cooler than New York City. Winters are cold, and can get bitter at times, with temperatures dropping below zero degree Fahrenheit 10 times a year and heavier snow than near the coast.

Obviously, summer is the best time of year to arrange your charter flight for vacations and leisure activities, offering dry, sunny days with crisp, cool nighttime temps. Fall is another great time for a charter flight, with foilage peaking in early October and rivaling any fall foilage display you’ll find in New England.

Ithaca offers some of the best and most diverse cuisine in upstate New York. The highest areas of concentration for restaurants are in Downtown and Collegetown. It’s also where you’ll find the most variety, whether you’re looking for pizza, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, or fine-dining options. If you’re not sure where else to look, take a stroll downtown along “Restaurant Row” on North Aurora Street, offering plenty of options to satisfy your cravings.

The Statler Hotel at Cornell University is the only four-star accommodation located in Ithaca (Collegetown), while the Aurora Inn is available just up the east side of Cayuga Lake in Aurora, NY. Head over to the north end of Seneca Lake to enjoy a stay at either Geneva on the Lake or Belhurst Castle.

Watkins Glen International is located about 30 miles to the west, and is the site of several motorsports events, including NASCAR’s only visit to the state of New York for its annual road-course race at Watkins Glen. The track is often referred to as “the Mecca of North American Road Racing”, and is a popular circuit among both fans and drivers.

Additional Airports

Private flights to central NY state can arrive using the following airport located between 25 – 35 nautical miles from Ithaca.
