The Macon-Bibb County Aviation Department oversees the Middle Georgia Regional and Macon Downtown Airports. The Airports are managed by TBI Airport Management, Inc. on behalf of Macon-Bibb County. Its primary responsibility is to ensure the safe, secure and efficient operations at both airfields. The department manages CIP projects, airport lease agreements and maintains over 1,600 acres of public property.
Both airports serve a diversified aviation market made up of commercial, corporate and recreational activities. The Middle Georgia Regional Airport is home to Boeing, Bombardier, and Timco aerospace businesses, which provide heavy maintenance to commercial air carriers, as well as aerospace manufacturing for U.S. military defense contracts. The airport indirectly supports approximately 2,000 jobs and provides a $200,000,000 annual economic impact.
