We at Western Nebraska Regional Airport are proud to be known as the “Scottsbluff Airport.” Always striving to provide the highest standards of customer service, convenience, and cleanliness in all of our facilities. Our mission is to serve Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming with the safest possible air service and to help spur economic growth in our business community for our neighbors.
Our history starts during WWII when the U.S. Army Air Forces operated a satellite airfield at this site. In the Fall of 1942, twenty-eight farms were purchased for the new airfield’s construction. Some 600,000 cubic yards of concrete for three runways was poured forty-five days. There were approximately 108 buildings on the grounds including barracks, mess halls, officers’ quarters, warehouses, a hangar, a camouflage interaction building, and a bombsight storage building.
Today, our airport covers 1,806 acres, has two runways, and thousands of flights every year. We indulge in the comforts of Italian food, wifi, easy parking and short lines, as well as state of the art flights. Western Nebraska Regional Airport is now part of the modern fabric of this community. We would like to thank you for flying with us all across the world.
