Olive Branch Airport Upgrades Continue

Runways were resurfaced at Olive Branch Airport this past fall.

Since acquiring the Olive Branch Airport in the fall of 2018, the City of Olive Branch continues to make upgrades to our first-class regional airport. This past fall, a much-needed resurfacing of the airport’s runways was completed.

The Olive Branch Airport is the second busiest airport in the State of Mississippi. The tower controlled airfield provides full service fueling and serves as a gateway to downtown Memphis and the mid-South. More than 75 private and corporate aircraft are based out of the Olive Branch Airport, and more than 35 hangers are located on site for private and community-based aircraft.

The airport provides courtesy vehicles, free Wi-fi, a spacious conference room, a pilot lounge/rest area and friendly staff to ensure a great experience to everyone who comes through Olive Branch. Two flight schools, Air Venture and Luke Weathers, are also based on airport property.

The City of Olive Branch has a forward-thinking vision for our airport, and more upgrades are coming in the near future. Olive Branch is incredibly fortunate to be home to such a highly regarded regional airport.
