Aviation Plan

Aviation is a critical part of our regional transportation system and important to the region's economy: in 2012 airlines brought 4 million visitors to the region, and handled nearly 200,000 metric tons of cargo.

The Council works with the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC), airport users, owners, affected communities, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to write the aviation plan element of the Transportation Policy Plan. 

The aviation plan includes goals, polices, review criteria, guidelines, coordination, and implementation procedures, as well as an airport system plan.
