Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport places corporate and business travelers right in the heart of one of the nation's best areas to live and work plus some of Florida's most popular attractions.

  • Six Full Service Fixed-Base Operators
  • A 24-hour FAA Air Traffic Control Tower
  • An Instrument Landing System
