Facts

 This opened up 92 years ago, on September 4, 1930, and is a hub for Delta airlines and the focus city for Spirit Airlines.

The website is here

It has 6 runways with either an asphalt/concrete surface. The lengths range from 8,500 to 12,003 Feet.

Total passengers for 2021 23,610,755 and 286,909 aircraft operations.

Airport

Along with the 6 runways, it was 2 terminals and 129 service gates. Those terminals take you to 30 international destinations and 39 states across the United States. That makes it able to go to over 140 destinations.

Ann Arbor, Windsor, Ontario, Southwestern Ontario (Canada),  Toledo, Ohio, and of course the Metropolitan area.

Being a base for Sprit airlines and Delta.

Delta

This is a hub for Delta, but it is a gateway to Asia and the Eastern United States. Now that is odd, I would figure JFK or Atlanta as being the gateway to Asia.

  • Aeromexico Connect
  • Air Canada Express

I haven’t heard of some of these airlines.

Thoughts

We stayed in the Delta terminal and didn’t wander too far, but it was a nice airport. All of them except for not being able to find Gate 74, as it was behind the Restaurant which is odd.

They had some charging stations and work areas for the working class.  It looked like the tram was nice, it appears that it is a big airport and that ride would be nice if you had to go a long way.
