We all know Panama City Beach is very easily accessible. The fact that one can drive here in a relatively short period of time makes us one of the most traveled-to (by car) spots in all of Florida. Not to take anything away from driving here, but if you’re looking to travel that much more quickly, you can hop on a quick flight that brings you to the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport – about a 15 minute drive from the beach.
The airport, coming up on celebrating five years since opening, is a stunning facility, built on approximately 1,300 acres of a 4,000-acre site. In 2010, it became the first airport to be built in 15 years, and notably the first international airport in the United States designed and built since the September 11 attacks. It was also designed to achieve Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. A major plus point for conservationists.
Featuring seven gates, an Audubon Environmental Kiosk, two restaurants, two retail shops, business center, regional information center and seven car rental ticketing counters, this facility provides the best air service in Northwest Florida, bar none.
Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport proudly serves Delta Air Lines, Silver Airways Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines which together provide daily flights to key U.S. destinations, including cities serving as international gateways.
