Laredo International Airport (IATA: LRD, ICAO: KLRD, FAA LID: LRD) is a city-owned public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of Laredo, a city in Webb County, Texas, United States.
It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, which categorized it as a non-hub primary commercial service airport. The airport is served by three commercial airlines with flights to Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas and Orlando. In the twelve months ending December 2013, LRD had 102,856 passengers. In 2012, LRD totaled 460,000,612 pounds of cargo.
The Laredo International Airport was used by the United States Army Air Forces during World War II as Laredo Army Airfield, and by the United States Air Force as Laredo Air Force Base during the Cold War as a pilot training base with T-33 Shooting Star and later T-37 Tweet and T-38 Talon aircraft. The military presence ended in December 1973 as part of a nationwide defense cut back following the end of the Vietnam War.
For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2017, the airport had 91,877 aircraft operations, an average of 252 per day: 45% general aviation, 40% military, 9% air taxi and 6% scheduled commercial. In September 2018, there were 65 aircraft based at this airport: 15 single-engine, 15 multi-engine, 20 jet and 15 helicopter.
There is one, two-floor terminal at the Laredo International Airport. The bottom floor contains the check-in counters, a gift shop, a restaurant, baggage carousel, rental car desks, and US customs. The airport's security checkpoint and four gates, all with jetways, are located on the second floor. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the terminal. Gates 3 and 4 allow direct access to US customs. LRD sometimes receives a share of diverted flights when severe weather threatens Dallas or Houston.
