Airport Future Master Plan

The proposed primary runway, taxiway and parking ramp pavement strengthening is a critical project for the Jonesboro Municipal Airport, the City of Jonesboro and surrounding communities in Northeast Arkansas. This additional strength will help existing based and itinerant aircraft fully utilize the airport and operated more safely. It will also accommodate much larger aircraft that have needed to use Jonesboro’s facilities for years but have been unable to. The completion of this project will immediately generate significant operations of larger aircraft at the Jonesboro Airport, which will impact fuel sales and other direct revenues to the community and will provide a tremendous opportunity for economic growth in a large area of Northeast Arkansas.
