Where Your Business Will Thrive
Why should you and your business choose Gateway?
First, location. Two freeways are within a half-mile of the airport’s border: the Loop 202 and State Route
24. Second, Gateway has a robust infrastructure, including three parallel runways, each approximately 10,000' in length, and multiple navigational aids
such as VORTAC, ILS, and ASR.
As a foreign trade zone, Gateway also provides access to international markets, and it has a skilled labor force able to support any business. In fact, five
post-secondary institutions—Arizona State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, East Valley Institute of
Technology, and the University of North Dakota—all have campuses at Gateway. Finally, Gateway is a vibrant commercial airport served by Allegiant, Swoop,
and WestJet. In 2019, more than 1.7 million travelers passed through Gateway’s 10 passenger gates heading to more than 45 non-stop destinations. Numerous
retail and concessions help to make Gateway one of the most pleasant flying experiences anywhere.
Overall, Gateway pumped more than 17.8 million gallons of fuel in 2020 and earned the title of busiest contract air traffic control tower in the United
States in 2018. With just under 280,000 annual operations completed in 2019, Gateway is operationally busier than Portland International Airport. Gateway is overseen
by the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. PMGAA consists of six members: City of Mesa, City of Phoenix, Town of Gilbert, Town of Queen Creek, Gila
River Indian Community, and City of Apache Junction.
