Youngstown–Warren Regional Airport is a joint civil–military public use and military use airport in Trumbull County, Ohio, United States. It is 10 nautical miles (19 km) north of the central business district of Youngstown and 10 miles (16 km) east of Warren. The airport is located in Vienna, Ohio and it is also home to the Youngstown-Warren Air Reserve Station.
The airport has been open for over 50 years and serves the Mahoning and Shenango (Steel) Valleys, and the Penn-Ohio Area (Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania). It is run by the Western Reserve Port Authority, which is made up of members appointed by the Mahoning and Trumbull County Commissioners. The WRPA also plays a vital role in the regional economy as it is teamed up with the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce and is leading the role of cleaning up the Mahoning River.
YOUNGSTOWN WARREN REGIONAL AIRPORT HISTORY
The Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport began as the Youngstown Municipal Airport (MAP), and was constructed as one of the last Works Progress Administration projects. Construction began in 1939 and the airport was operational a year later. The airport is located 11 miles (18 km) north of Youngstown in Vienna Center because during the 1930s and 1940s, there was little room inside the city limits for an airport the size of the one planned. The airport that had been serving the city, Lansdowne Airport, lacked the room to expand.
US Airways, United Airlines, Continental Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Pan Am Clipper Connection and Vacation Express have serviced the airport at some time in its history. In the early 2000s (decade), the airport had no scheduled commercial service. In 2006 Allegiant Air began scheduled service to Orlando, Florida bringing commercial air service back to Youngstown. In 2008 Vision Airlines announced the start of charter operations to and from Gulfport Mississippi once a month. Other local airports include Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Akron-Canton Regional Airport, Erie International Airport and the Pittsburgh International Airport.
