The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) offers bus services to the city via route 737; the bus typically runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but note that stops are infrequent for both (every 20 to 30 minutes in the morning and every hour or more later). Also, it's nice to know the airport is only 7 miles from the city, so if your Albany flights arrive early or late or you don't want to wait for the bus, you can hail a cab at an affordable price. Booking a limo is also an option.

  • Vischer Ferry Nature & Historic Preserve – Located along the Mohawk River, this nature sanctuary features hiking, birding, and nature trails—as well as cross-country skiing and even a few secret fishing holes.
  • Albany County Hockey Facility – While you could stretch your legs after your long flight on the trails at Vischer Ferry, why not put your body on ice, instead. Right next to the airport, the Albany County Hockey Facility has open-rink ice skating multiple times a week. We don’t recommend trying a Double Salchow without a proper warmup, though.
  • Lark Street – So your trip to the Empire State didn’t include any time in the Big Apple. No worries. You can experience the same Greenwich Village vibe in the bars, bistros, and boutiques along Lark Street.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Albany

Make your flight to Albany a little easier by following these handy security tips:

  • Be sure you know the whereabouts of your boarding pass and travel ID. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to present them.
  • Remove your belt and shoes before approaching the airport security checkpoint. Items such as these are not allowed in the body scanner.
  • All laptops need to be removed from their protective carry bags and placed in a tub for inspection.
  • When you get to the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all creams, liquids and gels in a separate bin for inspection. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they're a piece of cake to step out of when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next flight!
