The airport is 9 nautical miles (17 km) north of the central business district of Edinburg.[1] The airport is owned and operated by the City of Edinburg.[2] It received its current name in July 2007, prior to which it was known as Edinburg International Airport.[3]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned EBG by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[4]
