Did You Know That Boca Raton Has An Airport?
We have always loved what Boca Raton Airport has to offer in regard to flying options! Did you know you can fly into Boca Raton just as quickly as you can fly out! The airport is rich with history and has been part of Boca Raton since 1936.
With so many global businesses and headquarters based in and around Boca Raton, it makes it very easy for executives to fly private in and out of Boca Executive Airport or as “locals” call it Boca Exec!
If you have thought about relocating your business or making a move to Boca, having a hyper local airport nearby can be very convenient. South Florida is a moving magnet these days and businesses and people are moving here in droves for a variety of reasons.
As a local Realtor, with Real Broker, I have put together some information for you in regard to the business and tech environment here including an interview with the Boca Raton Economic Development Manager, Jessica Del Vecchio.
Fly In For South Florida Events
Perhaps you have a meeting here, want to fly in for a Miami Dolphins or FAU football game, attend a concert or fly over to the Bahamas for a beautiful vacation to fish, snorkel or dive? How cool is it that you could fly into Boca Raton Airport.
Entertaining guests or your business associates for the weekend? Charter flights make for a quick weekend getaway to enjoy our Boca Raton beaches, world class shopping, amenities and to have a fabulous dinner with friends!
No matter what the reason, Boca Raton Airport is convenient and well located to all things South Florida.
PS…the airport sits right off of Airport Road, I-95 and Spanish River. I love to watch planes of all types taking flight and landing daily with that gorgeous Boca blue sky and FAU Football stadium as a backdrop.
A Few Boca Raton Airport Facts
- The Airport encompasses 214 acres between Spanish River Boulevard and Glades Road. The Airport’s runway 5/23 is 6,276 feet long and 150 feet wide, with a full-length 40-foot wide parallel taxiway.

Things To Do in Boca Raton
Jetting off is as easy as 1, 2, 3 when flying out of Boca Raton Airport — no security delays, no two hour wait times, no crowds and most importantly no TSA!
Choose from a list full of carriers HERE, that best suit your needs. If you are just staying for the night, there’s a hotel right on site at the recently renovated Marriott Fairfield Inn and sever more close by.
If you are in need of some entertainment then head over to Cinemark Palace 20 to catch the latest flick, or catch an Uber or Lyft to shops and dining of Downtown Boca, Atlantic Ave or the Town Center Mall. This “fly private” idea is sounding better and better isn’t it!
