Welcome to the Tucson Airport Authority’s economic development pages.
TAA’s economic development program is responsible for:
- Aggressively implementing land planning and development of undeveloped property at both TUS and RYN airports.
- Proactively pursuing retention and targeted recruitment of businesses to expand and attract jobs and capital investment to TUS and RYN.
- Professionally advocating the interests of the TAA before local, regional and statewide groups, government entities and the private sector to promote the use and maximize the value of TAA’s real estate holdings.
If your company is considering options for expansion, relocation or consolidation, TAA invites you to review our economic development information and contact us directly with any questions or data requirements you may have. The TAA has excellent land and airside sites at both airports we are eager for you to consider.
