Our Culture

Together we'll GO far.

We're dedicated to shaping the future of world travel and delivering the best possible experiences for our passengers. We operate the most efficient single runway airport in the United States 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Running such an intricate machine takes skill, dedication and a go-getter attitude. We rely on a motivated, skilled and collaborative workforce fulfilling a wide variety of roles that come together like a symphony.

With so many ways to contribute here, chances are good you'll find a way to do what you love—with careers as diverse as security, finance, engineering and marketing—there's a wealth of career paths to choose from.

A Culture Built on a Foundation of Values

The Airport Authority marked its 20-year anniversary in 2023. A lot has changed since 2003 – for the airport and also the global community we serve. Recently, we adopted a new purpose statement, culture statement and leadership mindsets that reflect where we want to go as an organization. They are:

“At the Airport Authority, culture starts with diversity. Together, we build trust and a sense of belonging by empowering our teams to grow.”

“Creating an exceptional airport experience for the community and the world.”
