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.
