Charles George Hanna (1889–1942) was a politician from the United States. He was the forty-first mayor of Syracuse, New York (Republican, 1926–1929) and largely responsible for bringing air travel to the Syracuse Area. He acquired an airfield in Camillus, NY and renamed it Syracuse Municipal Airport in 1927. After World War II, the airport couldn't keep up with demand, so the city took over the former Mattydale Bomber Base and renamed it Syracuse Hancock International Airport.
