Logan-Cache Airport (IATA: LGUICAO: KLGUFAA LID: LGU) is three miles northwest of Logan in Cache County, Utah. It is governed by the Logan-Cache Airport Authority formed by Inter-local Agreement between Cache County and Logan City in 1992. The Airport was previously owned by Cache County and managed by the County Commissioners. The Authority is governed by a seven-member board: The Mayor of Logan, the Cache County Executive, two members appointed by the Mayor, two members appointed by the County Executive and the seventh member appointed by the other board members. The mayor and executive serve during their terms in elected office and the other five members serve for a period of two years and may be reappointed. The authority is subsidized by Logan City and Cache County and has no power to tax or bond for additional funding. Its revenues are derived from leases of land, buildings, fuel flow fees and tie down fees.[1]

Airlines and destinations[edit]

Western Airlines stopped at Logan from the 1940s until West Coast replaced them in 1959; West Coast pulled out in 1964. Key Airlines then served Logan from Salt Lake City from 1964 to 1976. From 1976, Utah carrier Transwestern Airlines had company headquarters at Logan airport, with flights to their hub at Salt Lake until their acquisition by Horizon Air in December 1983. Currently the only scheduled service comes from Ameriflight and Gem Air on contract with UPS, flying small package cargo from Logan to Salt Lake City and points in Idaho. The airport also sees frequent charter flights on behalf of Utah State University's athletic teams and their opponents.
