Ogden-Hinckley Airport (IATA: OGD, ICAO: KOGD, FAA LID: OGD) is a city owned, public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) southwest of the central business district of Ogden, a city in Weber County, Utah, United States. It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation reliever airport. Formerly known as Ogden Municipal Airport, it is billed as Utah's busiest municipal airport for private planes.
During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Forces. The airport serves general aviation aircraft consisting of private and business aircraft, charters, sight-seeing, air ambulance, and flight training.
In September 2012, Allegiant Air commenced non-stop scheduled service to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Prior to this service, the closest airport with scheduled airline flights is Salt Lake City International Airport, located approximately 30 miles south. In the event the Salt Lake City International Airport closes or has to turn away aircraft due to circumstances such as weather conditions below landing minimums, Ogden-Hinckley is capable of accepting diverted commercial flights.
