Planning + Development


After many years of coordination to procure funding from the EDA (U.S. Economic Development Administration), Northern Border Regional Commission (including awards from both New Hampshire and Maine), accumulated grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration, and investment from New Hampshire and Maine Departments of Transportation, we’re excited to announce our runway extension is in the planning stages and will soon be under construction and on the way to completion. This will add 800 feet in length, for a total of 5002 feet with a full length parallel taxiway in the plan.


As a true regional airport serving the entire Mount Washington Valley of Maine and New Hampshire plus the lakes region of western Maine, participation from both states, as well as Federal agencies shows the overall commitment of all involved to the importance of this location as a transportation infrastructure resource. We’re pleased by these financial endorsements and confidence placed in our decision to pursue this significant improvement project.
