CommutAir[edit]

The CommutAir website maintains that their hub is at Albany International Airport, which contradicts the article... Bayerischermann 03:28, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

International Airport[edit]

Don't deny it. ALB is an international airport (NOT a "regional facility"), even if there are only a few international flights. (Besides, there are daily flights to Las Vegas and Orlando, which are certainly not "regional".) Bayerischermann 20:25, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Why no mentioning of the fact that ALB is the oldest existing municipal airport in the US? No real history section about the building of ALB at the Shaker community and how the Shakers even helped by loaning their tractors and such. No mention of the history of how the airport was originally located on the site of the current Port of Albany facility and was originially named after Teddy Roosevelt's son, or of the famous people who have flown into it during the begining of the era of flight. Im impressed by the facts and figures but i personally love history and think more of the things that should make us proud of our airport should be in here, it's a much more important airport in history than the facts of its flight schedule would lead one to believe.24.182.142.254 (talk) 02:13, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
You should add the information as long as you can provide the appropriate citations (which I'm sure exist). Apr1fool (talk) 22:03, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
As Apr1fool suggested I put in the information about the beginnings of the airport in a new history section. If no one minds I would like to clean up the recent history section that is currently in a list form (and therefore not really conforming to the guidelines) and make it into a prose form. All of the information I put in the section comes from the airport's official website, I cited it at the end of the history section instead of continually citing the same source for every fact in that section. I hope to find more sources and therefore add more citations to that section. Castle Island (New York) article has some information on the early airport before its move to the current location.Camelbinky (talk) 01:05, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

2009 Presidential Visit[edit]

Who cares? Leave it to the bored in the Capital District to add an entry for a morning visit by the president. Is it newsworthy? No, it's not. I'm deleting it, not only because of its lack of worthiness, but because of the extremely poor way it's written ie) No 'President Barack' before simply stating 'Obama').Tatumstevens (talk) 19:15, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Maybe the fact that the President usually travels to Air Force bases instead of commercial airports. Also, the "bored Capital District" is producing many of the components of the computer that you commented with, so I wouldn't be so quick to make rude comments. The President visited to make a speech about GE, which is pretty big.66.81.120.23 (talk) 07:03, 29 November 2013 (UTC)Anonymous66.81.120.23 (talk) 07:03, 29 November 2013 (UTC) 1:56, 29 November 29 2013 (UTC)

General and military aviation?[edit]

Is this worth mentioning? AIA has faciliteis for private and business planes, as well as an Army National Guard UH-60 helicopter unit. A billboard also announces that AIA will be the home of a service center for the Hondajet —Preceding unsigned comment added by Triskele Jim (talkcontribs) 16:44, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

List of flight destinations[edit]

Does anyone object to removing the list of flight destinations? It seems that if I wanted to know that I would look at carrier websites as their information would be more up to date. Dakane2 (talk) 02:18, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

ALB really one of only four airports with functioning dual jet bridges?[edit]

I am quoting a passage from the article below:

"Albany International Airport is one of only 4 airports in the world using dual jet bridges (one bridge for the back, one for the front). However, only Southwest Airlines uses them.[citation needed]"

Is this really true? 24.97.68.92 (talk) 13:59, 10 August 2011 (UTC)


Largest Aircraft to Visit[edit]

In terms of passenger capacity, the MD-88 is the largest aircraft to fly out of ALB. However, I think larger is usually used in the context of dimensions. Yeejiny (talk) 00:05, 20 October 2011 (UTC)yeejinyYeejiny (talk) 00:05, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
