Featured Story
Mesa Airlines
Mesa Airports

Mesa Airlines is a regional airline that is based in Phoenix, just 14 miles from the city of Mesa, Arizona. This certified air carrier has been in operation since 1979 and is operated as a part of Mesa Air Group. For a short period of time Mesa Airlines was also known as Mountain West Airlines. Today, Mesa Airlines also operates flights as US Airways Express, United Express and Delta Connection. Mesa Airlines operates in more than 180 markets and has an excellent safety record.

One of the airports which Mesa Airlines operates out of is the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, which was formerly known as Williams Gateway Airport. This commercial airport is located in Mesa, Arizona and is also frequently known just as the Mesa Airport. Williams Gateway Airport Authority holds ownership of the airport. 

The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport was originally constructed in 1941 and was first inaugurated in 1942 as Williams Air Base. During World War II, the airport served as a flight training field for the purpose of training military pilots. A pilot school was also established there and numerous military war planes flew in and out of the Mesa Airport on a daily basis. In 1948, the airfield was established as the first jet training base in the United States. It was also established as the first site for the Undergraduate Jet Pilot training program in 1976.

Allegiant Air operates out of Mesa Airport with numerous scheduled markets, including Bellingham, Billings, Bismarck, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Chicago/Rockford, Eugene, Fargo, Great Falls, Medford, Missoula, Peoria, Rapid City, Redmond/Bend, Sioux Falls and Springfield. In addition, Vision Airlines also operates as a scheduled charter.

In addition, the Mesa Pilot Development program operates out of the Mesa Airport, a tribute to the airport’s long and valuable history as a flight training school.
