Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport is an airport located in Highfill, Arkansas, near Bentonville, Rogers, Fayetteville, Springdale, and Siloam Springs, Arkansas. It is commonly referred to by its IATA code, which is incorporated in the airport's logo as "Fly XNA".
XNA opened in November 1998 as a replacement airport for commercial traffic previously served by Fayetteville's aging and inadequate Drake Field, which was undersized to serve the rapidly-growing Northwest Arkansas region. American Airlines is the major carrier, serving 6 cities from XNA. Much of AA's expansion at XNA is due to its contract with Wal-Mart, which is based in Bentonville.
The airport recently completed a ticket counter expansion, and is planning two large warehouse additions.
