Ogden-Hinckley Airport ( IATA: OGD [2], ICAO: KOGD, FAA LID: OGD) is a public airport four miles southwest of Ogden, in Weber County, Utah. [1] The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a general aviation reliever airport. [3] Formerly Ogden Municipal Airport, [2] [4] it is billed as Utah's busiest municipal airport for private planes. [5]

The airport has an FAA control tower with radar approach service by Salt Lake City TRACON.

History

During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Forces.

Western Airlines arrived in 1944 and United Airlines in 1946; both pulled out in 1959. West Coast Airlines replaced them until it pulled out in 1961.

In September 2012 Allegiant Air began non-stop flights to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. [6] Prior to this, the closest airport with scheduled airline flights is Salt Lake City International Airport, about 30 miles south. If Salt Lake City International Airport closes or has to turn away aircraft due to bad weather, Ogden-Hinckley can accept diverted airline flights.
