Operated by Garfield County, Bryce Canyon Airport covers 215 acres and offers one asphalt-paved runway, 7,400-feet long and 75-feet wide. The runway daily caters to small propeller-powered planes mainly aircraft associated with Bryce Canyon Airlines, but also charters and private aircraft. The runway can also accommodate large airliners in emergencies.
One thing that sets Bryce Canyon Airport apart from other small airports is its unique hangar. Built by the Works Progress Administration in 1936, the hangar looks like a large log barn. Fashioned from local ponderosa pine, it adapted old-fashioned construction techniques to accommodate new transportation technology. The distinctive hangar is part of the reason the Bryce Canyon Airport found its way onto the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. When built, Garfield County’s aim for the airport was to attract tourists to Bryce Canyon National Park. From its inception, it has done just that.
