Palm Beach County, through its Department of Airports, operates and maintains Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA). 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, modern airport. PBIA has 28 aircraft gates with the potential for 24 additional gates at a later time.
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 beautifully landscaped roadway system leads to separate levels at the terminal for arriving and departing passengers.
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. PBIA is situated adjacent to Interstate Highway 95 and is 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 and 5,500 long term spaces and over 3,000 economy spaces. A major new feature is the Customs and Immigration facility which is capable of handling 300 passengers per hour and aircraft up to the size of B747-400.
