Monroe County owns and operates two airports: Key West International and Florida Keys Marathon International.
Both airports are self-supporting Enterprise Funds, which operate using money generated by rates and charges levied on airport tenants and users. The Airports Department operates the facilities and provides comprehensive aviation services.
