St. George Utah Airport
The St. George Utah Municipal Airport is the aviation gateway to St. George and Southwestern Utah, located just two minutes from downtown St. George.
With Lake Mead to the south west, Lake Powell to the east and with several National Parks such as Zion's, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Canyon Lands, and Brianhead Ski Resort, flying into the St. George region shows the beauty that one would enjoy.
The Airport is served year round by Delta Airlines, connecting through Salt Lake City, Utah, and by United Airlines, connecting through Los Angeles, California, with SkyWest Airlines flying the Delta and United connections.
The St. George Municipal Airport also serves FedEx, DHL, and UPS cargo carriers.

St. George is also in the process of constructing a new airport that will be much larger, and have many more direct flights around the country. Here's some information about the new upcoming St. George Utah airport.
- 6,500 ft. runway length
- Built on 274 acres
- Not expandable due to mesa top location
- No opportunity for airport related uses/industry adjacent to the existing airport
- No opportunity for commercial jet service today or in the future
- Does not meet current FAA safety requirements
- Does not have up-to-date instrument approach
- Property can only be used for airport purpose unless another acceptable to the FAA is available
- The current property is under contract for sale at $44 million and will close once the new airport is open
- Limited vehicular access and parking
- 9,300 ft. (1.8 miles) runway expandable to 11,500 ft.
- Built on 1,200 acres nearly five times the size of existing airport
- Two 50 ft. full length parallel taxiways
- Will meet all FAA safety requirements
- Construction provides hundreds of local jobs in a difficult economic climate
- Will accommodate regional jet aircraft, 737s and Airbus 319s
- Access provided from the new Atkinville Interchange and new Southern Parkway which is part of the proposed regional beltway
- More room for general aviation and fixed base operations
- Full ILS instrumentation and navigational aids will be available
- Completely expandable to allow the City to meet future needs of the community and area
- Thousands of adjacent developable acres to accommodate economic development activities
- Opportunities for other destinations and airlines if and when the market dictates
- Great time to build because of low construction and material costs, with bids coming in at an average of 45% to 50% below 2007 estimates
- New modern terminal building will be constructed
- The total cost of the replacement airport is estimated at $160 million
- Approximately $123 million is coming from FAA grants. These funds are generated by airline ticket sales, user taxes, fuel fees, and are not generated by federal income taxes. These funds can only be used for airport-related projects. Funds are collected nationwide; if the City does not use the approved grants, they will go to another airport project somewhere else in the country
- Approximately $44 million is available from the sale of the existing airport site once the new airport is complete and open
- No property taxes, income, or sales tax is anticipated to be used for the City's local share of the cost of this new airport
