West Michigan Airport Authority

Community-Owned and Supported

West Michigan Regional Airport is a community-owned resource, supported through operations revenue, government funding and local taxpayers. The West Michigan Airport Authority (WMAA) governs policy, budget and strategic planning for the airport to align with the best interests of taxpayers.

Formed in 2008, the WMAA board consists of nine representatives from the three regional municipalities where voters have approved our operations millage. These include the City of Holland, Park Township and the City of Zeeland. The board also retains ex-officio members who represent the Ottawa and Allegan communities and provide financial expertise.

Our Mission: The West Michigan Airport Authority will provide the public with state-of-the-art global air access to strengthen the local economy and improve the area’s quality of life.
