The Florida Keys Marathon Airport: Come Fly to the Heart of the Keys
MARATHON, Fla. — With seasonal, scheduled flight service from South Florida cities into Marathon, visitors from around the world are beginning to understand what private plane owners and corporate executives have known for years. The small tropical city of Marathon is a spectacular destination and an easy, centrally-located jumping off point to the entire Florida Keys island chain.
The Florida Keys/Marathon Airport, located at mile marker (MM) 52 gulf side, boasts a $9 million terminal complete with ample parking, a passenger lounge, car rental agencies, taxi stands and shuttle buses. The airport is located at the mid-point of the Keys, which means nothing is farther away than a 1 1/2 hour drive. And of course, visitors can reach Marathon's accommodations, attractions, cultural venues, fishing fleets and dive-snorkel boats in minutes.
Several charter services also serve Marathon. The facility is as popular as ever for general aviation enthusiasts and corporate jet owners who use the 24-hour, self-service fuel and tie-down space. New hangars for private planes have been built and more are on the way.
For additional help, staff at the Marathon Chamber of Commerce are available to answer visitor questions about travel to Marathon and the Florida Keys. Call toll-free 1-800-262-7284, local 305-743-5417 or visit the Chamber's website at www.floridakeysmarathon.com.
