Airport of the Future

During the Carson City Airport Authority's (CCAA) strategic planning process in the summer of 2019, the CCAA developed a strategic goal of, "Supporting Economic Activity in the Region". A strategic initiative of researching the re-naming of Carson Airport was developed. The initiative proposed that changing the name of the Carson Airport to be more reflective of its location in the region would support the strategic goal of "Supporting Economic Development in the Region."

The current name of the airport as listed on the Federal Aviation Administration/Department of Transportation (FAA/DOT) Airport Master Record (Form 5010) is "Carson Airport" and the three-letter identifier is "CXP". The International Civil Aviation Organization's identifier is "KCXP".   

Why change the name of the Carson Airport?
The name "Carson Airport" does not reflect that the airport resides within the capital city for the State of Nevada. The east shore of Lake Tahoe is just a 10-minute drive from the State Capitol Building. Therefore, an airport name change reflecting the proximity of the airport to the State of Nevada's seat of government and to the internationally recognized destination of Lake Tahoe, a re-branding effort of the Carson Airport could contribute to the strategic goal of supporting economic activity in the region by bringing additional flights and tourism to Carson City. These additional flights would result in increased economic activity in Carson City and the region. The FAA three-letter identifier "CXP" and the ICAO identifier "KCXP" would not change.

The survey below is in support of the CCAA's strategic initiative of researching the potential name change of the Carson Airport.
