PBI is one of three main commercial airports serving South Florida. In 2018 they saw 6.5 million passengers through their terminal gates.
Palm Beach International Airport started operations in 1936 as Morrison Field, named in honor of Miss Grace K. Morrison. The first ever flight departing the field was a DC-2 bound for New York flown by Eastern Air Lines in 1936. In 1937 the airport grew when the Palm Beach Aero Corporation obtained a lease, constructed hangars, and the first terminal, the Eastern Air Lines Terminal. During World War II the airfield was used by the U.S. Army as Morrison Field until it returned to Palm Beach County in 1947. In 1948 the airport was renamed Palm Beach International and reopened for commercial flights.
Palm Beach International Airport is located just 2.5 miles west of downtown West Palm Beach and 3.5 miles from Palm Beach. PBI is next to I-95 and is readily accessible from anywhere in Palm Beach County. Boca Raton is about 20 miles south, and Jupiter is just 15 miles north. The airport serves Palm Beach and its four surrounding counties.
