Ford Airport (IATA: IMT, ICAO: KIMT, FAA LID: IMT) is a county owned public use airport in Dickinson County, Michigan, United States. It is located three miles west of the central business district of Iron Mountain,[2] in the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The airport offers scheduled passenger service by one commercial airline, an affiliate of Delta Connection, which is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program. It is also a hub for FedEx Feeder operator CSA Air.

Ford Airport serves the greater Dickinson County area which includes the cities of Iron Mountain, Kingsford and Norway in Michigan and the bordering Wisconsin communities of Aurora, Florence and Niagara. Its service area also includes portions of Iron and Menominee counties in Michigan and Florence and Marinette counties in Wisconsin.

It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a non-hub primary commercial service facility.[4]
