Rochester International Airport Code

Rochester International Airport (RST) was first established in 1927 as an airfield. It was initially built to serve the needs of the local area, and was owned by a private firm. Over time, the airport grew in size and importance, becoming a hub for air travel throughout the Midwest. In the 1940s, RST became one of the first airports to offer commercial flights, providing service to nearby cities such as Minneapolis-St. Paul and Chicago. The airport continued to grow throughout the 1950s and 60s, with more airlines adding flights and additional terminals being built. In 1970, RST received its international designation from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), making it one of only a handful of airports in Minnesota that could support international travel. This allowed Rochester to become a major transportation hub for travelers heading both domestically and internationally.

In recent years, RST has seen many upgrades and renovations that have made it even more accessible for travelers. The most notable upgrade occurred in 2011 when a new terminal building was constructed that features modern amenities such as improved security measures and energy efficient lighting systems. The airport also boasts an expanded parking area with over 4,000 spaces available for short-term or long-term use. Additionally, RST has recently added more international routes to its list of destinations which now includes cities like London Heathrow Airport and Tokyo Narita Airport among others.
