The Downtown Airport plays a key role in the continued economic prosperity of the Spartanburg community. The airport is the 3rd busiest in terms of traffic among 55 general aviation airports in South Carolina, contributing $25 million to the local economy. With nearly 80,000 operations yearly, the airport creates 190 aviation-related jobs in the area with a payroll in excess of $10 million.
The airport underwent a $4.4 million transformation in 2011 with renovations to the terminal building and two new units of T-hangars.
Runway Extension Project
Now, a $25 million project is under way at the City of Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport. The existing runway will be extended by 1,700 feet, bringing the total length to nearly 6,000 feet. Extending the runway safety area by 1,000 feet is also part of the expansion plans due to FAA requirements.
The project, which will take 18 months to 2 years to complete, also includes resurfacing the existing runway and upgrading airport navigational and lighting systems.
