Port Columbus International Airport


In the past 5 years, the Columbus regional Airport Authority has invested more than $210 million in capital improvements to Port Columbus. Improvements include the newly reconstructed International Gateway, significantly increasing the efficiency of traffic flow into and out of the airport. Upcoming capital improvements include the replacement of the south runway, a project that recently received $90 million in funding from the Federal Aviation Administration. The replacement of the south runway will enable greater airport capacity by allowing for an increased number of aircraft operations and creating space for a future second terminal.

FTZ #138 encompasses nearly 5,200 acres with sites in 10 counties in or near the Columbus region. These General Purpose Zone sites are intended for multiple users and are either industrial parks or multi-tenant buildings. Subzones are for a specific company at a specific location.
