Palm Beach County, through its Department of Airports, operates and maintains Palm Beach International Airport (PBI).
On October 23, 1988, a state-of-the-art terminal building was dedicated and exists as a truly superb example of a user-friendly, congestion-free, comfortable yet modern airport. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the terminal, we continue the tradition of offering convenience and comfort.
PBI has nearly 100 daily non-stop departures to more than 25 destinations in the US, Canada and the Caribbean on 13 airlines.
PBI has enjoyed many awards over the last 25 years, including third best airport in the U.S. and sixth best in the world by the readers of the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine. Our concessions have been recognized over the years by Airport Revenue News as having superior shops and restaurants, and most recently PBI received the 2013 ARN Most Unique Services award.
The 600,000 square foot terminal includes a concession mall which runs the length of the building. Other features include three passenger concourses and holding areas. A new beautifully landscaped roadway system leads to separate levels at the terminal for arriving and departing passengers.
PBI has 28 aircraft gates with the potential for 24 additional gates at a later time.
Palm Beach International Airport is conveniently located to serve the air trade area of Palm Beach County and the four surrounding counties. The airport is located 2.5 miles west of downtown West Palm Beach and just 3.5 miles west of Palm Beach. PBI is situated adjacent to I-95 and is easily accessible from anywhere in Palm Beach County. Boca Raton is approximately 20 miles south and Jupiter is only 15 miles north.
Palm Beach International Airport has 1,100 short term parking spaces, 5,500 long term spaces and over 3,000 economy spaces all located on airport premises.
