The Jefferson County Airpark, located on County Road 33 , is near the City of Steubenville and Village of Wintersville in Eastern Ohio. We feel you will agree, as have most visitors, that this public, general aviation airport is one of the best in operation today.
Boasting renovated facilities, the Airport management invites you to fly in or to stop by and see the upgrades. In 2005, the newly extended 4400 ft. runway was opened for use. A terminal building and 32 nestled-T hangars have been constructed to enhance the Airport's attractiveness to both commercial aviation and the general public. We are moving to expanding the runway to 5000 feet, thus enabling the Airpark to accommodate jets and other larger aircraft.
Not only is the Airpark suited for aviation, but it is also a major asset to businesses, with several already located on the Airpark. We are five miles from the busy Ohio River and less than 5 miles from the Jefferson County Industrial Park. Because we are just a 45 minute drive from Pittsburgh, PA., our Airpark gives pilots an alternative to the congestion of Allegheny County. We also provide quick access to the major industries of the Ohio Valley. Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel , TIMET , American Electric Power , DeNoon Lumber , Weirton Steel , Wheeling-Nisshin Steel , and the Mountaineer Race Track and Gaming Resort are all easily accessible from the Airpark.
But business and industry are not the only benefactors of the Jefferson County Airpark. Medical air transportation is within minutes of Trinity Health System 's East and West Campuses and the Weirton Medical Center . It is also a short drive to the Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Jefferson Community College . Recreational facilities and tourist attractions located anywhere within Jefferson County are within short driving distance.
The Airpark is a major asset among the area's transportation resources and as such has a great economic impact on the area. Many times airport location can be a deciding factor when a new business or recreational facility considers relocation. Our site is within 10 minutes of a major metropolitan area, rural farming, and new home developments.
The Airport staff will assist you with contacting local restaurants, hotels and motels, and limousine and auto rental services. The Airpark also can provide courtesy transportation for your short, local trips. You can also find additional information and services available on our area by contacting the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce .
Jefferson County is rich in resources with industry, business, tourism, recreation, higher education, and friendly people. The Board of Trustees of the Jefferson County Regional Airport Authority invites you to visit. As aptly stated by the director of Progress Alliance , our economic development office, Jefferson County has land, logistics, and location which make it an ideal place to live, work, and play.
