Wichita Falls Regional Airport Code

Wichita Falls Regional Airport was established in 1929, when the City of Wichita Falls purchased a plot of land and built a small airfield. The airport was originally named Wichita Falls Municipal Airport, and it served as an important hub for aviation in the area. The airport was initially used for military purposes during World War II, before being turned over to civilian use in 1945. In the 1950s, commercial airlines began operating out of the airport, and it continued to be a popular hub for passengers traveling in and out of the city. In 1982, Wichita Falls Regional Airport was renamed to honor Colonel William J. Gannaway Jr., who had been a local aviator and served in both World War I and World War II. Throughout its history, the airport has seen numerous expansions and upgrades to its facilities, including multiple new runways that have been added since the 1980s. Today, Wichita Falls Regional Airport is home to several commercial airlines that provide service to cities across Texas and beyond. It also serves as an important base for private aviation operations throughout North Texas.
