[Video Only] - Inaugural Flight!! Southwest Airlines from Syracuse, NY

Tue Nov 16, 2021 10:12 pm


This time I had the chance to ride on Southwest Airlines first ever scheduled passenger flight out of Syracuse, NY (SYR). This is something the airport has been trying to get for a long time, and all of the clapping and cheering in the video certainly shows how excited everyone was for this to finally be happening. Many dignitaries from around the state showed up for first flight from a NY state representative to the the CEO of multiple companies in the central New York area. There was also a water cannon salute despite the temperature hovering right around 37F or 38F Hope you enjoy!!!

I was supposed to be on this flight too. But, I had to cancel it at the last minute. I wanted to go on the first one, because I've been waiting for Southwest to start SYR for years. But, I'm going to be flying Southwest out of SYR for Thanksgiving next week.
