COVID-19:  Airport Operations Update

Skagit Regional Airport has remained open 24/7 during the pandemic as an essential service for businesses and emergency services.  The Airport Terminal will continue to be open during regular hours.  Please observe the posted social-distancing practices.

Effective June 1st, the Port of Skagit Administrative Office will re-open to the public with new safety protocols in place.  Administrative Office visitors are encouraged to review the complete list of safety measures prior to stopping by the office to understand what to expect during your visit.  A full list of safety protocols can be found on our website HERE

The Port will continue to stagger staff work schedules until further notice, so we encourage you to call ahead if possible:  360-757-0011.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to provide the best service possible for our tenants, customers and community.



Airport Runway Length Survey--Your Feedback Is Needed:


The Port of Skagit has initiated an Airport Master Plan Update for the Skagit Regional Airport.  A key component of the study is to document an operational need for a longer runway.  Once justification is established, the airport will be eligible for FAA financial support of the project. 

Your participation in the study is greatly appreciated.  Information will be compiled in summary and individual responses will not be reported in any manner without your approval. 

Please complete  the survey by April 15, 2019

Skagit Regional Airport, owned and operated by the Port of Skagit, is your aerial gateway to the beautiful Skagit Valley. Situated several miles west of Burlington, WA, the airport offers stunning views from the pattern of the surrounding Skagit Valley, the Cascade Mountains to the east and the San Juan Islands to the west.

This popular general aviation facility serves a variety of users, including business, commercial and recreational aviation. Available on the airfield are excellent terminal facilities, aviation fueling and a variety of aircraft maintenance and related services, including qualified flight instruction.

The airport has two paved runways and an extensive taxiway system that provides access to all developed areas of the airfield. In its current configuration, the airport is an uncontrolled field (no control tower). Currently the airport is home to more than 150 aircraft, from small single-engine recreational aircraft up to corporate jets. Annual airport operations are estimated at 60,000 for 2012. The Port of Skagit commissioners and staff take great pride in their work to maintain Skagit Regional Airport as a safe and attractive facility that will serve an increasingly important purpose as a transportation link for its community in the future.
