Put-in-Bay Airport

Put-in-Bay’s airport underwent a major renovation in the 1996 and had a change in their FAA Identifier in 1998 from OH30 to 3W2 (3 Whiskey 2). The once narrow, gravel covered dogleg landing strip was replaced with a modern asphalt runway 2,870 feet long and 75 feet wide.
The airport is serviced by small commercial carriers located at the Port Clinton and Sandusky air fields as well as a local island air service. The island airport is the major mode of transportation for islanders during the winter months who must either fly or use an airboat for transportation between the island and the mainland once the ferry boat service ends for the season.
The commercial carriers use small planes — generally carrying 3 to 15 passengers — to transport passengers and freight to the islands. Commercial service tends to fall off during the summer resort season, but the airport is busy during that period with private aircraft whose pilot and passengers arrive for an day of sight-seeing or a short vacation.
