Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport
||The Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport is located on 547 acres in Auburn, Maine. The airport supports local and regional general aviation, flight training, cargo, and a large volume of corporate activity.
The cities of Auburn and Lewiston own and operate the airport and it is strongly supported by the Androscoggin Valley County of Governments.
The Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport has a long history with the Twin Cities. Since it's beginning in 1935, many improvements have occurred which have helped to meet changing aviation demands and community needs. While we started out as an airport supporting mainly recreational flying, we soon took on commercial airline services.
Although the airlines left in 1989 due to restructuring federal aviation subsidies, we now thrive by serving the varied needs of corporate, charter, cargo, and recreational aviation activities. This diversity will continue into the future as we look at ways to incorporate other modes of transportation into an integrated inter-modal passenger facility here at Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport. Since over 65% of the state's population lives and works within 30 miles of our main runway, this is the perfect spot for such a facility.
With over 200 developable acres, a foreign trade zone, Customs clearance at the inter-modal freight facility, and the fastest growing inland port in New England... it's happening here.

Why is a master plan necessary?
An airport master plan is needed for two reasons. First, to establish a logical set of development parameters and timelines that will coincide with the airport’s needs over time. Second, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires an up-to-date plan to remain eligible for federal grant funds. Many capital improvement projects are eligible to receive up to 95% funding from the federal government.
