Blue Ash Airport

Cincinnati-Blue Ash Airport

Blue Ash Airport , also known as Cincinnati-Blue Ash Airport, is a public airport located in the city of Blue Ash in Hamilton County, Ohio, United States. It is six miles (10 km) northeast of downtown Cincinnati and is owned by the City of Cincinnati.

Overview

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Blue Ash Airport is assigned ISZ (formerly I77) by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.

The City of Blue Ash completed a purchase of the airport and property from the City of Cincinnati in 2007. The current Master Airport plan specifies the retention (and improvement) of the current runway, but the removal and demolition of all facilities to the West of the runway (the current taxiways, hangers, and ramps), and the construction of a parallel taxiway, and new terminals and facilities on the East side of the runway. The reclaimed area to the West of the runway will be converted into a park, some light retail spaces, a museum, and additional space for three relocated holes from the Blue Ash Golf Course.

Facilities and aircraft

Cincinnati-Blue Ash Airport covers an area of 257 acres (104 ha) which contains one asphalt paved runway (6/24) measuring 3,499 x 75 ft (1,066 x 23 m).
