Key West International Airport


Key West Key West Key West

Key West International is a very unique airport due to its history, compact size, and geographic location. Originally called Meacham Field, the airport had its first scheduled flight in 1928. During the WWII era, the airport was used by the United States Army. In 1953, the city of Key West granted Monroe County clear title to Meacham Field. Shortly thereafter, Meacham Field became Key West International Airport. Today, EYW has the ability to safely and efficiently handle a large number of aircraft operations, connecting Key West to the global air transportation system.
