Other MAC Airports
The MAC owns and operates a seven-airport system, including MSP, in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. The other six airports are general aviation intermediate and minor airports known as "reliever airports" because they help relieve congestion at MSP.
These reliever airports, listed below and mapped for reference, provide services for aircraft and aircraft operators that include supplies, education, aircraft storage, fuel, mechanical and airframe work and more to address a variety of aviation needs, such as recreational flying, private business travel, military operations, emergency medical transportation and flight training.
More than half of all registered aircraft in Minnesota are based at the MAC's reliever airports. By providing an alternative to MSP for private and corporate flights, the reliever airports increase the safety and efficiency of the entire airport system. Together, the reliever airports accommodate more than 300,000 aircraft operations per year. More than 1,300 aircraft are based at the airports, from antique and experimental aircraft, to modern propeller models, to the latest in corporate jet technology.
The reliever airports system generates an estimated $756 million a year for the area economy and supports more than 3,600 jobs.
The MAC Community Relations Office assesses and monitors aircraft noise impacts at the reliever airports, and works with stakeholders to develop solutions for reducing impacts on the surrounding communities.
