Master Plan Update

In late 2017 Lakeland Linder International Airport began the process of updating its master plan to define the Airport's development over the next 20 years.The Airport Master Plan project is an 18-month process that will be completed in the Spring of 2019. The project is funded through a grant partnership with the FAA, FDOT, and local funding sources. The final product will serve as a critical tool for the Airport depicting the existing airport facilities and planned development initiatives which are vital for coordination between the Airport, the FAA, and the FDOT for capital improvement needs.
