The History of Miami Opa Locka Airport

The Aviator and early aviation pioneer Glenn Curtis had donated the land upon which the Miami Opa Locka executive airport was built. It was leased to the United States Navy and since then Miami Opa Locka Executive airport has had a rich history from the 1930s till now. It has housed the Good Year Blimps to the Navy and now the Coast Guard.

KOPF is a major reliever airport for Miami International Airport, and It’s located 11 miles north of downtown Miami. Miami Opa Locka Executive Airport is the preferred airport for all the private jets and privately owned aircraft companies that fly into Miami. The main reason is the cost of the Jet-fuel and parking fees at KMIA or Miami International airport, which is highly expensive and gives preference to the major airlines arriving from South America and Europe. Miami Opa Locka Executive Airport, on the other hand, caters to the need of General Aviation aircraft and has three runways and multiple maintenance and hangar facilities to take care of all the private jet traffic.

For private jet charter to or from Miami, Opa Locka Executive Airport call Icarus Jet on +1-888-277-7203 (24 Hours) or contact us Online.
