Southwest Oregon Regional Airport (IATA: OTH, ICAO: KOTH, FAA LID: OTH), formerly North Bend Municipal Airport, is a public airport in North Bend, Coos County, Oregon. It is operated by the Coos County Airport District.
The airport changed its name in April 2006 to avoid confusion with Bend, in central Oregon.
It is the only commercial airport on the Oregon Coast and is served by "United Airlines" (Skywest) and SeaPort Airlines. Skywest flies to San Francisco International Airport (since July 2008) and ended its long-running service to Portland International Airport on February 16, 2012. In January 2012 SeaPort Airlines started daily flights to Portland. The airport was previously served by Horizon Air, which had linked North Bend to Portland International Airport since 1982. Horizon Air service ended October 11, 2008.
The airport is seeing more private jets carrying golfers to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, a 20 minute drive from the airport. The airport opened a new terminal in July 2008; in February 2009 a new Air Traffic Control Tower opened.
