Media Center

The Tucson Airport Authority has a long history of working closely with the news media to provide the public with current airport information as quickly as possible. Media representatives are welcome to take airport familiarization tours and inquire about aviation related issues.

The Tucson Airport Authority Media Manual provides information about emergency response, access to the airport, airline contacts, and important telephone numbers.

Media inquiries regarding any aspect of airport operations, concessions, parking, or public safety should be directed initially to the TAA Information Department. This includes requests to cover any news stories that may take place at Tucson International Airport or Ryan Airfield.

Business Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

After Hours: (520) 573-8100

A TAA Information Department representative will assist the media by providing information about the Tucson Airport Authority and the operations of Tucson International Airport or Ryan Airfield. The Authority website provides an extensive amount of information as well.    

Tucson Airport Authority Information Department staff is on call and available for assistance.
