Your Local, Hometown Airport
Originally built as an auxiliary to Moody Field, Valdosta Regional Airport has been serving the area since the 1940s. The U.S. Government declared it surplus on December 8, 1946, and it was converted to a public airport.
Valdosta Regional Airport sits on 760 acres of land located a short distance south of the City of Valdosta. In 1980, we began providing commercial commuter service to and from Atlanta. Today, our airport has three runways, two of which are used by current commercial aircraft.
Our airport has office facilities and hangar spaces available to rent. For information about availability and prices, please contact our airport manager at 229-333-1833 (click to call).

Our airport is owned and operated by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Airport Authority.
