Atlantic City International Airport Car Service
The Atlantic City International Airport(ACY) is located 10 miles north of Atlantic City, in Egg Harbor Township. It is a joint civilian-military airport operated by the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA), as well as the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
The military component of the Atlantic City International Airport is home to the New Jersey Air National Guard’s 177th Fighter Wing and F-16C/D Fighting Falcon. ACY is also home to a Coast Guard Air Station, which operates the HH-65 Dolphin.
Interestingly, the Atlantic City Airport also has the distinction of being an official alternate landing site for space shuttles.
The South Jersey Transportation Authority has begun planning extensive Atlantic City International Airport terminal expansions, with the goal of improving the airport’s capacity to serve more airlines.
In 2011, ACY handled 1,404,119 passengers, which ranked it as the 102nd busiest American airport.
The Atlantic City International Airport was originally built in 1942 as the Naval Air Station Atlantic City, which launched its existence as a military base. It was used as a training facility for a number of different carrier air groups such as fighter, torpedo and bomber squadrons. A year later, its purpose was exclusively shifted to fighter training. In June 1958, it was decommissioned at which time the Federal Aviation Agency – now known as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – took over.
Today, the Atlantic City International Airport covers 5,000 acres of land and has one terminal. It is seen as an alternative to Newark Liberty International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport, with a notably smaller layout.
