Griffiss International Airport (IATA: RME, ICAO: KRME, FAA LID: RME) is a public airport located one mile (2 km) east of the central business district of Rome, a city in Oneida County, New York, United States. This airport is publicly owned by County of Oneida. It is located on the former site of Griffiss Air Force Base, which closed in 1995.

Operations from the Oneida County Airport in Oriskany, New York were transferred here in 2006, after which the county closed that airport in January 2007.

In December 2013, Griffiss International Airport was selected as a test site by the United States Federal Aviation Administration to "aid in researching the complexities of integrating Unmanned Aircraft Systems into the congested, northeast airspace." Students from the Rochester Institute of Technology will work with Griffiss to test drones at the airport. The airport will continue test site operations until at least 2017.

Facilities

Griffiss International Airport covers an area of 1,680 acres (680 ha) and contains one runway:

  • Runway 15/33: 11,820 x 200 ft (3,603 x 61 m), Surface: Concrete
  • For 12-month period ending 13 September 2005 the airport had 1,000 aircraft operations:

  • 85% general aviation: 850

    With the construction of a new terminal building finishing in 2015, public officials hope to secure additional investment in the facility to attract passenger airlines. The new terminal building will also allow for international flights to the airport, as it was constructed to accommodate a US Customs Service-regulation facility for potential international passengers.
