located on approximately 500 acres of land with a 4,100' single runway,
parallel taxiways, Federal contract air traffic control tower, and medium
intensity airfield lighting. Localizer/DME approaches are available from
the north and the south.
In addition to all standard aircraft services,
airport businesses offer air charter, aircraft sales,

Originally constructed as a Naval auxiliary field during World War
airport was deeded to the City of Olathe in 1951 and from the city
County in 1967. The Board of County Commissioners created the Johnson
Airport Commission to manage, operate, and improve the airports.
With over 50,000
annual operations and approximately 210 based aircraft, the airport
is the fourth
busiest in the state of Kansas.
Improvements to the airport include a new concrete runway and
localizer with MALSR lighting system. The west parallel taxiway
was reconstructed and a
holding bay added to the south end for improved traffic handling.
