Newton City/County Airport, Kansas
Select the category of your choice
Newtons City-County Airport (designated EWK) is located east of Newton 2 _ miles from the I-135/First Street exit. Situated on approximately 562 acres, the airport has acquired an additional 98 acres of aviation easement surrounding the site as runway protection zones.
Originally constructed as an auxiliary flight training facility for the United States Navy, the airport was converted to a municipal facility following World War II. In 1969 the airport became jointly owned by the City of Newton and Harvey County, with each contributing equal support through mill levies. A full-time airport manager is supervised by the city manager.
Today, EWK primarily serves Harvey County as a transport facility, but has been designated by the FFA as a general aviation reliever airport for Wichitas Mid-Continent Airport. As a result, Newtons City-County Airport receives priority funding under the FAA Airport Grant Program, insuring the continuation of an aggressive airport development program.
