Ogdensburg International Airport (IATA: OGS, ICAO: KOGS, FAA LID: OGS) is a public airport located in the town of Oswegatchie, two miles southeast of Ogdensburg, in St. Lawrence County, New York. It is owned by the Ogdensburg Bridge & Port Authority, which also owns and operates the Ogdensburg–Prescott International Bridge, Port of Ogdensburg-Marine Terminal Facility, Commerce Park, Port of Waddington, a medium-heavy industrial park and two short line railroads. The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority is a New York State public-benefit corporation. The international airport is just outside the city limits on NY 812. It is used for general aviation and commercial service. Scheduled commercial flights are operated by one airline: SkyWest Airlines operating as United Express (service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program).
Federal Aviation Administration records say the airport had 603 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008, 2,329 in 2010, and 10,281 in 2016. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a general aviation airport (the commercial service category requires at least 2,500 enplanements per year).
Ogdensburg International Airport covers 500 acres (202 ha) at an elevation of 297 feet (91 m). Its one runway, 9/27, was 5,200 by 150 feet (1,585 x 46 m) asphalt until the summer of 2016 when it was extended to 6,400 (1,951 m) by 150 feet length. In the year ending March 23, 2015 the airport had 1,508 aircraft operations, average 126 per month: 71% air taxi, 21% general aviation, and 8% military. Seven aircraft were then based at the airport, all single-engine. There are a handful of buildings: a small hangar, storage shed and fire hall.
