Fostoria Metropolitan Airport (ICAO: KFZIFAA LID: FZI) is a city-owned public airport two miles northeast of Fostoria, Ohio.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009-2013 classified it as a general aviation airport.[2]

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is FZI to the FAA and has no IATA code.


The airport covers 201 acres (81 ha) at an elevation of 752 feet (229 m) above sea level. Its one runway, 9/27, is 5,000 by 100 feet (1,524 x 30 m) asphalt.[1]

In the year ending May 19, 2008 the airport had 7,900 aircraft operations, average 21 per day: 95% general aviation and 5% air taxi. 14 aircraft were then based at this airport: 93% single-engine and 7% jet.[1]


Recently the Fixed Based Operator (FBO) David Sniffen III was recognized by the Ohio Aviation Association as the 2010 Airport Manager of the year for the state of Ohio.
