About King County International Airport
King County International Airport, commonly known as Boeing Field, is owned by King County and managed by the Aviation Division of the King County Department of Transportation. It is one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country—used by aircraft of all sizes and types, and filling a wide range of commercial and recreational needs. It receives no general tax dollars and is financed by rents, fees and some FAA resources.
Boeing Field was opened in 1928 to serve multiple functions: as a municipal airport, as a testing and delivery facility for the Boeing Company, and as a major air freight center for the region’s industries. Today, the airport continues to fill a multitude of needs and averages around 300,000 operations annually. It is a base for about 150 businesses, including air cargo companies, flight schools, charter operations, and helicopter services. Other tenants include hundreds of small aircraft owners who use planes for recreational and business purposes. The Museum of Flight, located at the airport’s southwest corner, features a wide variety of aircraft and exhibits showcasing aviation history from the earliest days of manned flight until today.
