Atlantic City International Airport (IATA: ACY, ICAO: KACY, FAA LID: ACY) is a joint civil-military public airport located nine nautical miles (17 km) northwest of the central business district of Atlantic City, in Atlantic County, New Jersey, United States. Located in the Pomona section of Galloway Township, it is the major component of a national aviation area that lies on portions of three municipalities: Egg Harbor Township, Galloway Township, and Hamilton Township. The airport is accessible via Exit 9 on the Atlantic City Expressway. The facility is operated by the South Jersey Transportation Authority, which also owns the terminal building. Most of the land area is owned by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The facility also serves as a base for the New Jersey Air National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing operating the F-16C/D Fighting Falcon, and the United States Coast Guard's Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City operating the HH-65 Dolphin. The airport is adjacent to the FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center, a major research and testing hub for the Federal Aviation Administration, and a training center for the Federal Air Marshal Service. It has also been a past designated alternative landing site for the Space Shuttle.
The airport is served by Spirit Airlines. Additionally, Harrah's Entertainment is offering service to select destinations east of the Mississippi River via its Total Rewards Air. This service is being offered as a scheduled charter and only during the summer months. Flights are offered through Gold Transportation on a Sky King or Pace Airlines 737, or similar aircraft.
The South Jersey Transportation Authority has outlined plans for massive terminal expansions (on top of current initiatives) which might be necessary if more air carriers wish to serve the airport. Total passenger traffic at the airport in 2011 was 1,404,119, making it the 102nd busiest airport in the country. The SJTA is currently discussing a possible sale or transfer of the airport's operating lease to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The SJTA owns a small area around the terminal and leases runways and other land from the FAA.

Famous quotes containing the words airport, atlantic and/or city:
“Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.”
—Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
“The shallowest still water is unfathomable. Wherever the trees and skies are reflected, there is more than Atlantic depth, and no danger of fancy running aground.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I am more and more convinced that, with reference to any public question, it is more important to know what the country thinks of it than what the city thinks. The city does not think much.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
