Millington-Memphis Airport supports commercial aircraft.




Situated within the heart of the Memphis Aerotropolis, the Millington-Memphis Airport is located just 12 miles north of downtown Memphis in Shelby County, TN. The airport has easy highway connectivity via Highways 51 and 385 and Interstate 40, allowing for quick access to the city center. In addition to convenient interstate access, the Canadian National Railroad runs adjacent to the airfield and the Millington Industrial Park, making the airport a true intermodal transportation hub.

The airport itself has an 8,000 ft. runway and generous apron space that allows us to accommodate aircraft of all sizes for commercial traffic, private planes and cargo carriers.

In addition to your flight and air service needs, the airport also boasts 1,350 acres of land that can be developed to meet a multitude of commercial opportunities. For information about the surrounding land availability, contact Mr. John Crisp at (901) 873-5790 or visit the Millington Industrial  Development Board.
