Air Service

Ogden City has managed a municipal airport since 1928. The original airport sat on 200 acres in southeast Ogden (near where the Ogden Regional hospital is now located) and had three gravel runways. In 1940, work began on development of a section of land southwest of Ogden to meet army air service training requirements. In May 1943, the airport was reestablished and opened in its current location. On October 1943 was dedicated as the Robert H. Hinckley Airport. More of this info can be found in the Standard-Examiner Oct. 3, 1943 Pg 2-B and Pg B-1 .


Robert H. Hinckley Field was named after the Ogden native who has a long history with aviation. Robert H. Hinckley's list of achievements are vast.  A short list would include: He was co-founder of the Utah Pacific Airways which became the largest Fixed Based Operator (FBO) in the Rocky Mountain area during that time, he created the Civilian Pilot training program which trained pilots to serve in WW2, he was head of the Civil Aeronautics Authority (CAA), which later became the FAA, he co-founded the ABC News network, and he was the founder of the Hinckley Institute of Politics.  More of his story can be found on Evalogue.life.


*     In 1943, Western Airlines began mail and passenger service from Ogden, with United Airlines providing service in 1946. Both services ended in 1960 due to poor demand.

*     In late 2012, Allegiant Air started service to Mesa/Phoenix and now a decade later, it has been very successful. The Ogden Regional Airport continues to strive for adding more service to other destinations.  Allegiant served OGD using Airbus A-320 aircraft with 180 seats. Allegiant served OGD-AZA, Ogden to Mesa, Arizona.

*     In May 2021, Avelo Air started service to Burbank-Los Angeles using Boeing B-737-800 aircraft with 188 seats.


Unfortunately, due to a lack of pilots, Allegiant ceased operations at OGD in April of 2022 and Avelo moved their aircraft the was serving OGD from Burbank to New Haven, Connecticut in June of 2022.


OGD Airport is currently without any airline services, but we are aggressively pursuing re-establishing airline service in 2024.  Keep in touch for the upcoming changes.
