Board of Commissioners

A Board of Commissioners, whose members are appointed by the Naples City Council, governs the Naples Airport Authority.

The Naples Airport Authority has no shareholders and receives no local government funding or guarantees. All operating revenues are generated by business activities conducted by the Authority and are dedicated exclusively to the operation, maintenance and development of the airport.

Naples Airport Authority typically meets the third Thursday of each month, except July, at 8:30 a.m. in Naples City Council Chambers, 735 8th Street South. The meetings are televised live on the local Comcast Cable Channel 98 and online through Naples TV.
