Henderson Executive Airport (IATA: HSHICAO: KHNDFAA LID: HND) is a public airport located 11 nautical miles (20 km; 13 mi) south of the central business district of Las Vegas, in Clark County, Nevada, United States. The airport is owned by Clark County[1] and operated by the Clark County Department of Aviation. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009-2013, it is categorized as a reliever airport.[2] It was originally known as Sky Harbor Airport, but was renamed in 1996 when it was purchased by Clark County to be used as a reliever airport for McCarran International Airport.
