Destin Executive Airport may consist of a single runway, but don’t let that fool you. The airport averages 175 operations a day, with a diverse fleet mix including jets, trainers and private aviators. Nicknamed “Gateway to the Emerald Coast”, Destin’s airport supports a number of thriving resort communities, lined by some of the South’s most beautiful beaches. The airport also lies just five miles southeast of Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport and Eglin Air Force Base – one of the busiest bases in the country. This has given rise to emerging needs to accommodate the influx of tourists and snowbirds.
