More Time for Fun When you Fly to Branson Airport
Just minutes South of Branson, in the Communities at Branson Creek Development, the Branson Airport is the only privately owned and operated airport in the United States. But it is unique in many much more tangible ways. Before you land you'll be struck by the stupendous view of the Ozark Mountains from the air, and once you touch down, exiting your plane the old-fashioned way, down air-stairs, your walk to the unpretentious terminal confirms this place is special.
Upon entering the facility, you get the feeling you are in a lodge, not an airport. With stone fireplace, barn wood floors and open beam construction welcoming you like only Branson can.
The airport opened with great fanfare in May, 2009. A crowd was on hand to view the US Air Force Thunderbirds, US Army parachute team Golden Knights, wing-walkers, and more in what has become an annual Air Show. The first official flight touched down the very next day from Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Building this airport was a feat in itself, requiring the moving of more than 11 million cubic yards of earth to flatten the hills in what was the largest earth-moving project in Missouri history.
