With three major runways—two 9,800-ft parallel runways and one 7,800-ft crosswind runway—Will Rogers World Airport can accommodate most any size aircraft. With a strong mix of commercial, freight, military, corporate and general aviation activity, the airport handled over 112,000 operations in 2013.
Five commercial carriers operate at Will Rogers with service to 21 nonstop destinations. Its passenger-friendly terminal handles an average of 150 commercial flights each day, carrying over 3.6 million passengers annually.
The airport is home to 70 companies which employ over 12,000 people. Major tenants include the FAA's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, AAR Aircraft Services – Oklahoma, ARINC, the Federal Bureau of Prisons Transfer Center, Southwest Airlines Reservation Center and the Metro Tech Aviation Career Center.
With its central location, just minutes from “America’s Crossroads” (the junctions of I-35, I-40 and I-44) and large developable tracts of land, Will Rogers World Airport offers great development opportunities for aviation, aviation support, industrial, office and retail businesses. Will Rogers World Airport also encompasses Oklahoma City's Foreign Trade Zone, providing cargo logistics and tariff-related advantages for companies who trade internationally.
Since 2001, more than $264 million has been invested in infrastructure and passenger facilities. In response to the growth in activity, airport administrators have announced a terminal expansion. The expansion design will extend the terminal building to the east adding three new gates, with the capability to add another six as demand merits. The plan will also centralize the security checkpoint improving the screening process. The expansion is expected to be complete in 2018.
