Air Travel

A listing of air carriers that service the Rochester area can be found here: Greater Rochester International Airport.

Flying into the Rochester Airport can be expensive depending on the airline and the dates you travel. As an option, you may want to consider flying into Buffalo, NY. The savings may be worth the cost of a renting a car and driving to Rochester. We are about 1 1/2 hours from the Buffalo airport. (If you choose to do this, let Betty Aman know - there may be other applicants doing the same and you could meet at the Buffalo Airport and carpool to Rochester.)
