Some private-use and former airports may be included where notable, such as airports that used to be public-use, those with commercial enplanements recorded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or airports assigned an International Air Transport Association (IATA) airport code.


This list contains the following information:

  • Location - The village or island generally associated with the airport.

  • Role - One of four FAA airport categories, as per the 2009-2013 National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) Report and updated based on FAA Passenger Boarding Data:
    • P: Commercial Service - Primary are publicly owned airports that receive scheduled passenger service and have more than 10,000 passenger boardings (enplanements) each year. Each primary airport is sub-classified by the FAA as one of the following four "hub" types:
      • L: Large Hub that accounts for at least 1% of total U.S. passenger enplanements.
      • M: Medium Hub that accounts for between 0.25% and 1% of total U.S. passenger enplanements.

    • CS: Commercial Service - Non-Primary are publicly owned airports that receive scheduled passenger service and have at least 2,500 passenger boardings each year.
    • R: Reliever airports are designated by the FAA to relieve congestion at a large commercial service airport and to provide more general aviation access to the overall community.
    • GA: General Aviation airports are the largest single group of airports in the U.S. airport system.
  • Enpl. - The number of enplanements (commercial passenger boardings) that occurred at the airport in calendar year 2013, as per FAA records.
