Millington Regional Jetport , formerly known as Millington Municipal Airport, is a public airport in the city of Millington, in Shelby County, Tennessee, USA. The airport is located north of Memphis. It was formerly known as Naval Air Station Memphis and it still provides support to military aircraft visiting the adjacent Naval Support Activity Mid-South.
The 1993 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission report resulted in significant changes to the base's mission and its redesignation in 1995 as Naval Support Activity Memphis. The airfield and flight line proper was turned over to the city of Millington, which is now the Millington Regional Jetport.
In 1998, the name of the remaining naval base (i.e., non-airfield) was changed to the Naval Support Activity Mid-South to better reflect its current mission and the Navy's approach to regionalization. Naval Support Activity Mid-South (NAVSUPPACT) is one of the largest single employers in the state of Tennessee, with approximately 6000 military, civilian and contractor employees on 1,950 acres. The naval base hosts many tenant organizations, notably the Commander, Navy Personnel Command (NAVPERSCOM) and the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS).
