About Spokane International Airport
Spokane Airports is jointly owned by Spokane County and the City of Spokane. The city and county operate the airports under provisions of RCW 14.08, which establishes the operation of airports by more than one municipality under joint agreement. The operating authority of Spokane Airports is the Spokane Airport Board, consisting of seven appointees from the two governmental bodies. The Board annually invests approximately $30 million in capital improvements utilizing various funding sources.
The Board operates three facilities: Spokane International Airport, Felts Field Airport, and the Airport Business Park, as well as, has a Grant of Authority to operate Foreign-Trade Zone #224. All three facilities are financially self-sufficient from revenues generated from fees, leases, and concession agreements. None of the three entities receive, nor are operated with, appropriated tax dollars.
