Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (IATA: PHXICAO: KPHXFAA LID: PHX) is a joint civil-military public airport located 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of the central business district of the city of Phoenix, in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. It is Arizona's largest and busiest airport, followed by Tucson International Airport and is also the largest commercial airport in the American Southwest.



Sky Harbor has been operating under its current name since prior to 1935, when it was purchased by the city of Phoenix. In the 1950s it was served by American Airlines, Bonanza Air Lines, the original Frontier Airlines and Trans World Airlines; a couple of American's flights were "interchange" flights that continued on Delta routes beyond Dallas, or on Continental routes beyond El Paso. The April 1957 OAG shows 16 scheduled weekday departures on American, 11 TWA, 10 Bonanza and 5 Frontier.
