 The Airport gates are back to full operation.  This is a reminder that all gate card users need to adhere to Airport policy and only use the gate nearest the ramp that you are traveling to.  It is against Airport policy to use the zipper lane to travel from one ramp to another.  Thank you for your cooperation!

May – September   7 am – 9 pm 

The Renton Municipal Airport, owned by the City of Renton, is a general aviation airport which serves Renton and other nearby communities. The airport provides regional aviation services for air charter, air taxi, corporate, business and recreational flyers. It is also an FAA-designated "Reliever" airport, diverting general aviation aircraft traffic from Sea-Tac International Airport.

The airport is located approximately 25 minutes south of downtown Seattle to the northwest and Bellevue to the north, and is situated in the center of the regional transportation network that connects State Highways 167, 169, 515 and 900 to Interstate Highways 5, 405 and 90.

The Airport is used predominately by single-engine piston aircraft, and ranks among the top six airports in the State of Washington in terms of aircraft landings and takeoffs. The Boeing Commercial Airplane Company, located adjacent to the airport, manufactures Boeing 737 aircraft and uses the airport for their initial flights.

Seaplane (or floatplane)  operations from the Will Rogers-Wiley Post Memorial Seaplane Base, located at the north end of the airport along the shore of Lake Washington, also comprise a significant level of activity at the airport. The seaplane facilities include a floating dock and launching ramp, which make the Renton Municipal Airport one of the few airports in the Pacific Northwest where aircraft can land on wheels and depart from the water, or vice versa, if they have the correct equipment.

The Renton Municipal Airport is a Landing Rights Airport, with US Customs services available for both floatplane and wheeled aircraft arriving by water or by land.
