Phoenix International Airport Information

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is located just a few minutes from downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Originally, the airport was owned by Scenic Airways, which opened the airport in 1928. After the airport exchanged hands, it was purchased by the city of Phoenix in 1935. After it opened, the airport began to grow as new terminals and runways were built to match the air traffic and passengers.
