Naples Airport move study identifies 4 potential sites. Here’s where they are.

The exploratory study looking at the feasibility of moving the Naples Airport got to one of the main points Thursday with the presentation of potential sites for an airport in east Collier County.

Consultant Environmental Science Associates – ESA – met with some of the landowners and came up with a list of four sites that could serve a general airport or possibly one with commercial flights. These landowners were open to the idea of selling land for an airport, ESA’s Doug DiCarlo told the board. They haven’t met with Collier County Commissioners as of yet.

A general aviation airport would require 1,800 to 2,000 acres; a commercial services airport would need 2,000 to 2,400 acres, ESA determined. ESA was hired in June 2023 to conduct the study. The company won’t compare the sites or make a recommendation on a site or on moving the airport at all.

Site A: Property East of County Landfill (±9 miles from existing airport)
Site B: Lipman Farms area (±11 miles)
Site C: Sunripe Land South of Oil Well Road (±23 miles)
Site D: Immokalee Regional Airport (±30 miles)
