Muskegon County Airport is a public airport located four miles (6 km) south of the city of Muskegonmarker in Muskegon Countymarker, Michiganmarker, USAmarker. The airport has two runways. It is mostly used for general aviation but is also served by Northwest Airlines flying turboprop planes to its Detroitmarker hub. The airport and the county of Muskegon are currently working with a consultant to restore and add jet service to Chicago O'Hare International Airport through the small community air service development program.

History

In 1927, the Greater Muskegon Chamber of Commerce began a campaign to establish the Muskegon County Airport. The Muskegon County Board of Commissioners approved the construction of the airport's first terminal in 1931. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) project cost the county $12,000.

The airport hosted an airshow called the Muskegon Air Fair until 2006. Due to declining attendance and budget deficits, the air fair was placed on hiatus for the summer of 2007. A motorcycle rally known as Muskegon Bike Time was created to take its place. Following the success of the bike rally the airshow was permanently cancelled by its organizing board in September 2007.
