Manchester Boston Regional Airport (IATA: MHT, ICAO: KMHT, FAA LID: MHT), commonly referred to as Manchester Airport, is a public airport 3 miles (5 km) south of the central business district of Manchester, New Hampshire, United States, on the border of Hillsborough and Rockingham counties. The airport lies in two communities, Manchester and Londonderry. Founded in 1927, it moved more than 1 million passengers in a year for the first time in 1997. After years of growth it handled 4. 33 million passengers in 2005, its peak year. Passenger tallies have declined since then in common with many regional airports; it handled 1. 85 million passengers in 2018. Manchester Boston Regional Airport is by far the busiest airport in New Hampshire and the only one with substantial commercial service. It is also New England’s fifth-largest airport by passenger volume, behind Boston Logan in Massachusetts, Bradley International in Connecticut, T. F. Green in Rhode Island, and Portland International Jetport in Maine. It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017 2021, in which it is categorized as a small hub primary commercial service facility. The facility was known as Manchester Airport until April 18, 2006, when it added ‘Boston Regional’ to advertise its proximity to Boston, about 50 miles (80 km) to the south. Certified for Cat III B Instrument Landing operations, the airport has a reputation for never surrendering to bad weather. The airport has closed only once, when the national airspace was shut down for two days following the September 11 terrorist attacks, and all American airports were required to close. It is home to the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, built around an Art Deco control tower and terminal opened in 1938.
