There are many reasons why people feel that Naples is the quintessential laid-back southwest Florida town. From the best beaches and outdoor activities to fine restaurants and shopping, Naples has it all.
But no matter what they come for, the first experience that many visitors have on Florida’s Paradise Coast is at Naples Airport.
“Naples attracts people because of its quality of life,” says Christopher Rozansky, Executive Director, Naples Airport Authority. “As the airport authority that also runs the sole FBO, our goal is to provide a first and lasting impression of excellence.
“We have invested heavily in remodeling our terminal/FBO building and improving the airport to provide the best experience for pilots and passengers,” he continues. “The safety, comfort, and convenience of all our visitors are our priorities.”
Good pilots make good neighbors
Of course, every Naples Airport team member realizes that being a good neighbor is one key to the operation’s long-term success.
“Naples is a noise-sensitive community, particularly in light of the increased jet traffic since the pandemic,” Rozansky says. “We are currently undertaking a rigorous Part 150 Noise Study to help us evaluate ways to mitigate noise issues.
“We’ve initiated voluntary ‘quiet hours,’ between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.,” he explains, “and I’m happy to say that this has been well received by many of our operators, including several industry leaders who have committed to not flying during those times. We have also held numerous meetings with our residents to explain the importance of the airport and to get their feedback on how we can be a good neighbor.
“Our customers and industry partners understand how important these efforts are, and we appreciate their cooperation,” Rozansky continues. “The Naples Airport Authority is taking steps to provide an exceptional experience to travelers while providing a positive economic impact and being a valued member of the community.”
