On July 16, 1935, the City of Phoenix became the owner of
Sky Harbor Airport, nicknamed “The Farm” because of its isolated, rural
location. For $100,000, the city purchased the airport’s 285 acres from the
Acme Investment Company. Over the last
84 years, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has grown to 3,400 acres and
has become one of the busiest airports in the country, ranked 13th busiest in
the U.S. for 2018. That same year, Sky Harbor served 44,943,686 passengers, had
434,252 operations, and handled 392,063 tons of cargo. The total economic
impact of the Phoenix Airport System is $38 Billion, including 269,000 jobs,
and the direct economic impact of Sky Harbor alone is $12.3 billion, with
57,432 jobs at the airport.
