The Immokalee Regional Airport, situated on 1,333 acres of land located approximately 35 miles northeast of Naples and 110 miles northwest of the Port of Miami, provides tremendous business advantages.
The Airport is in a designated Florida Rural Enterprise Zone and HUB Empowerment Zone. The Florida Rural Enterprise Zone Program supports economic revitalization in high unemployment or otherwise economically disadvantaged within the state by. offering tax incentives to businesses located within the Enterprise Zone. Visit Collier County's Comprehensive Planning website for information regarding general and specific incentives in the Immokalee Rural Enterprise Zone.
The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program is a United States Small Business Administration program that provides federal contracting opportunities for qualified small businesses in distressed areas. Additionally, a 60-acre zone in and around the Airport is a designated Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). The FTZ designation offers companies the convenience of deferring any duties or taxes until the business ships the goods outside of the FTZ.
The airport is also used for aerial firefighting and crop dusting operations, and is home to IHRA sanctioned weekend drag racing.
