Arkansas International Airport (IATA: BYH, ICAO: KBYH, FAA LID: BYH) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northwest of the central business district of Blytheville, a city in Mississippi County, Arkansas, United States. It is owned by the Blytheville Gosnell Regional Airport Authority.
Arkansas International Airport covers an area of 1,100 acres (450 ha) at an elevation of 254 feet (77 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 18/36 with a concrete surface measuring 11,602 by 300 feet (3,536 x 92 m), with runway markings of 11,602 by 150 feet (3,536 x 46 m).
For the 12-month period ending August 31, 2009, the airport had 33,000 aircraft operations, an average of 90 per day: 58% general aviation and 42% military. At that time there were 15 aircraft based at this airport: 87% single-engine and 13% multi-engine.
The facility has 1,500,000 square feet (140,000 m2) of available space, which makes it the second largest industrial complex in Arkansas. The complex consists of commercial, community, recreation, educational, garage, industrial, office, residential, and warehousing facilities, which makes it very open for many uses.
Because it was an Air Force base, it has room and facilities that are not available in many other complexes. Some of these extra functions include five million square feet of ramp space and 6 full size hangars. These full size hangars are large enough to accommodate a DC-10 or a Boeing 767. Facilities also include a full airplane maintenance and test hangar, with enough space to maintain the planes listed above. These buildings add up to approximately 300,000 square feet (28,000 m2).
The airport has the second longest runway in the state of Arkansas at approximately 11,600 feet (3,500 m) in length. The airport also has very reasonable seasonal climate conditions, which makes it convenient for year-round travel. The airport can accommodate up to 50 aircraft, and has large hangar and storage areas for maintenance and repair needs.
The airport also accommodates deployment and pick-up of National Guard troops, as well as training grounds for military flight training maneuvers, primarily USAF C-130 training operations from Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas Air National Guard A-10 training operations from Fort Smith Air National Guard Station and Arkansas Army National Guard helicopter training operations from Camp Robinson.
On Thursday, October 19, 2017, the airport became the first airport in the state to utilize LED High Intensity Runway Lights (HIRL’s).
