We Provide
Access from our community to the world. Our airport is another of the many tools the city of Elkhart makes available to interested businesses who need to get from point A to point B quick, efficiently and above all safely. For every dollar used by the airport, $72 dollars are placed back into the community.

Jobs. Both directly and indirectly, because the airport exists more than 1,520 jobs have been created, according to the Aviation association of Indiana. Large corporations based at the airport also employ many local citizens. Owning an aircraft is not a "perk", it is a vital business tool that can help a company expand and provide more jobs.

Significant Economic Impact. Aviation Association of Indiana conducts a survey of all Indiana airports, and calculates a dollar value of each. The 2012 economic impact for Elkhart Airport was recorded at just over $197,000,000 million annually.

The National Air Transportation Association named Elkhart one of the
100 most needed airports in the US.
