West Michigan Regional Airport is owned and managed by the West Michigan Airport Authority. Formed in 2008, the WMAA is made up of representatives from three local municipalities: City of Holland, Park Township and City of Zeeland. Residents of these municipalities voted to approve the support of the airport and creation of an authority. The WMAA oversees the budget and operation of West Michigan Regional Airport, as well as the relationship with the Fixed Base Operator, Tulip City Air Service.


Board members stay current with the industry and share ideas by visiting other aviation-related businesses and organizations like the West Michigan Aviation Academy at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, and by offering speaking engagements to community groups.

Mission Statement: 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.

Public meetings of the West Michigan Airport Authority take place at 11:30 a.m. on the second Monday of every month at West Michigan Regional Airport (unless noted):
