Mid-Way Regional Airport
When you fly into Mid-Way Regional Airport, you will experience first class service at one of the friendliest airports in the region. They offer an array of amenities found only at
larger airports, but without
the congestion and hassle.
Mid-Way Regional Airport is a 320-acre general aviation airport that is located 30 minutes south of downtown Dallas and 35 minutes southeast of downtown Fort Worth on U. S. Hwy. 287 between Midlothian and Waxahachie. The airport started out in 1992 as a joint municipal airport and has evolved to serve the growing base of aviation demand within the region, with more frequent use by business aircraft, including business jets. The airport has grown from 19 based aircraft in 1998 to 87 aircraft presently.
Mid-Way was originally designed for expansion to meet growing aeronautical business and traffic needs. In 2011, the first expansion extended the runway to 6,500 feet to accommodate all business jets. The most recent expansion in 2012 included a major terminal renovation. In 2013, the apron expansion was completed.
The Cities of Waxahachie and Midlothian have each established an Airport Overlay Zone and Airport District; which, provides for appropriate and compatible uses of land surrounding the airport and also provides for the safe operation of the airport facility itself.
With all of the renovations, expansions, and planning accomplished, Midway Regional Airport is now better able to support local business and industry. Mid-Way has become an excellent location for aviation related companies looking for a cost effective airport that is centrally located within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
