Airplane Taking OffCentury 21 Ryan Realty, Inc is proud to announce the new Bay County International Airport construction is ahead of schedule.

Exciting news today is that the construction at the new Panama City-Bay County International Airport site in West Bay is three months ahead of schedule.

The airport's relocation project manager, John Zebroski, and airport board Chairman, Joe Tannehill, held their meeting at the construction site on Tuesday.  According to an article in the local News Herald updating construction progress, the FAA unanimously approved acceptance of a $28.2 million FAA grant for the second phase of construction at the site. With the upcoming completion of access roads, construction of the new runways can commence as well as enable materials to be transported for terminal facilities.


Relocation of the airport to this new larger site holds big promise for our community.  Featuring longer runways up to 8400 feet, this new airport hopes to bring more competitve airfare rates and easier access to our community for our tourist trade. 

The new Panama City-Bay County Airport will be located on County Hwy 388 just east of County Road 79.
