Arkansas's airports are conveniently located minutes from our major downtowns. The Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT), Arkansas's largest commercial service airport, serves approximately 2.2 million passengers annually. With more than 116 departures at Little Rock each day, 334 unique destinations around the world with only one stop from LIT, and non-stop jet service to 14 national/international gateway cities, Little Rock is truly one stop away from the world.
In addition to commercial aircraft, Clinton National serves general aviation/private aircraft with two fixed base operators (FBOs) on the field: Central Flying Service and Supermarine. With 21 hangars on 77 acres, Central is the nation's largest fixed base operation and offers a huge paint and interior refurbishing shop, non-destructive testing and sheet metal fabrication.
The Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA), which opened in 1998, is the state's second largest travel hub, serving non-stop flights to several national and international airports. Regional airports in El Dorado, Fort Smith, Harrison, Northwest Arkansas, Hot Springs, Jonesboro and Texarkana also provide commercial service to several national airports. These airports provide both day and night services, and most have instrument approach capability.
The Arkansas Aeroplex at Blytheville, formerly Eaker Air Force Base, is the state's second largest industrial complex and one of the largest commercial airstrips in the central United States. Situated in a campus-like setting, the facility offers fiber-optic technology, 1.5 million square feet of available facilities and space for new construction.
