Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) was certified for operation in May 1983.
In response to over two decades of record-breaking growth, a bright, modern, state-of-the-art terminal opened in 2005. This award-winning facility was designed with today's traveler in mind and tomorrow's opportunities in view.
RSW served more than 7.5 million passengers in 2011, and is one of the top 50 U.S. airports for passenger traffic.
Today, 18 airline partners serve RSW with nonstop service throughout North America and international service to Canada and Germany.
Located in Fort Myers, the airport is perfectly positioned to serve the greater Southwest Florida area, including Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Sanibel, Captiva, Greater Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades, Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf Islands as well as other points along Florida's Gulf Coast.
Visitors can go from bag claim to beach in under 30 minutes. With quick access to Interstate 75 and U.S. 41, travelers will find that the airport's location puts all the attractions of the region within easy driving distance.
