Skagit Regional Airport
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, an alternate grass landing area 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.
