Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BNIA) Construction Continues

As per notification from the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA), the BNIA will be under construction starting June 1, 2024. Please read below the information provided by the NFTA, Aviation Director.

The second and final phase of the full reconstruction of the main runway at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will take place this summer. A temporary shift in air traffic patterns will result. We are grateful for the continued patience of our neighbors as we make critical investments in BNIA, which generates approximately $1.7 billion in annual economic activity, supports nearly 12,000 jobs and generates $127 million in annual state and local tax contributions.

Neighbors who express understandable concerns about shifting air traffic patterns may wish to be made aware that this shift in air traffic patterns is not permanent, but temporary. Additionally, in recent days we have worked with our contractors to minimize the extent and duration of the closure and the resultant traffic pattern shift to the greatest extent possible.

Current closure schedule:
June 1st and June 2nd only      Overnight closure only (9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.)
July                                               Overnight closure only (9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.)
August and September              Full 24/7 closure
October                                        Overnight closure only (9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.)

Again, we are grateful for the patience of the communities we serve as we make this significant and necessary infrastructure investment. This is the first full reconstruction of BNIA’s main runway since 1948.
