It is the mission of the Grant County Airport to provide a modern, safe, all-weather airport, enabling our community to take advantage of aviation services such as airline travel, emergency travel or services, easy access into and out of Grant County, as well as many other services, which enhance the quality of life in Grant County.

The Grant County Airport is owned and operated by the Grant County Commission. Built in 1951, Grant County Airport continues to provide a wide range of benefits to the citizens of Grant County and Southwest New Mexico.
