Winslow–Lindbergh Regional Airport (IATA: INW, ICAO: KINW, FAA LID: INW) is 1 mile (0.87 nmi; 1.6 km) mile west of Winslow, in Navajo County, Arizona. The U.S. Forest Service has a firefighting Air Tanker base here. The airport was served by TWA and Frontier Airlines but now sees no airline service.
The airport was built in 1929 by Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT). Aviator Charles Lindbergh, who served as head of TAT's Technical Committee, chose Winslow as one of twelve critical refueling stops on the nation's first transcontinental passenger line. For many years it was the only all weather airport between Albuquerque, New Mexico,and Los Angeles, CA. During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Forces Air Transport Command as a refueling and repair stop for military aircraft. The airport is dedicated to the memory of Melvin L. Kislingbury, a Winslow resident who was killed in a WW II flight mission in Louisiana in 1943. TWA's last scheduled flight to Winslow was in 1953. Arizona Airways served the city in the late 1940s and merged to become Frontier Airlines in 1950. Frontier served Winslow as one of several stops along a Denver to Phoenix route and service continued until 1974. The city was then served by several commuter airlines with flights to Phoenix until the late 1980s. These commuters include Cochise Airlines, Desert Airlines, Sun West Airlines, and Golden Pacific Airlines.
