Landing Prosperity in Southern Arizona
The Tucson Airport Authority is a unique independent nonprofit created and developed by community business leaders and established by Arizona state charter in 1948. The TAA operates Tucson International Airport (TUS), the region’s major commercial airport, and Ryan Airfield (RYN), a general aviation airport west of Tucson.
The TAA does not receive any local tax dollars. Operations are funded through revenues from parking, space rentals, land leases, fuel sales, airline landing fees, and concessions. Capital improvements such as runway and terminal construction are funded through state and federal grants.
