Airport History
The Provincetown Municipal Airport is a primary service airport
with scheduled passenger service to Logan International in
Boston, MA. Located in Provincetown, MA, on the northern tip
of Cape Cod, the airport lies within the Cape Cod National
Seashore sited on approximately 322 acres of federally-owned
land administered by the National Park Service. The only other
airport in the country located within a National Park is the
Jackson Hole Airport in Wyoming.

Constructed in the 1940s, the Provincetown Municipal Airport
consists of developed airside and landside areas maintained for
airport facilities and operations, surrounded by undeveloped
areas that consist of grasslands, coastal dunes, and freshwater

Airside facilities include a single runway, runway 7-25, a
taxiway system, aircraft parking aprons, an approach lighting
system, navigational aids, and weather instrumentation. The
runway was first paved in 1948, and was most recently
reconstructed in 2003 including the construction of runway
safety areas.

The west end and mid-connector taxiways at the airport are
jug-handle shaped to accommodate the large DC-3 aircraft in
operation at the airport in the 1940s and 1950s.
Landside facilities at the airport include a terminal building, an
aircraft hangar, an aircraft rescue and firefighting/snow
removal system equipment garage, ground support facilities,
the Michael A. Leger Memorial Sightseeing Shack, and an auto
parking area. The terminal building was reconstructed in 1998
and is a single story wooden structure of approximately 4,800
square feet. Passenger facilities, TSA screening areas, and a
conference room are all located within the terminal building.
The airport facilities are owned by the town of Provincetown,
MA but leased to and managed by Cape Air, which provides
scheduled air service to and from Boston’s Logan as well as
fixed based operator (FBO) services to general aviation pilots
and passengers.
