Port Justin Airport, (Airport Code: JA0), was the former international airport for the city of Port Justin, Jill. It was demolished in March 2001, with the new Port Justin International Airport taking its place.


The airport was built in 1932 after the explosive growth of the city of Port Justin in the 1920s. The chosen site was on the Gold Shores River, 17 miles east of downtown.

Construction was completely done by 1935. The airport, at first, was extremely quiet due to its strong disposition. With insufficient roads leading to the airport, there was barely any passenger traffic throughout the 1930s. In 1943, though, City Highway 1900, or the "Airport Highway", was built and the airport finally became successful.

The 1950s and 1960s were boom times for the airport. In 1952, City Highway 1900 was demolished and replaced with the new Intercity Highway 10. Huge renovation was finished in 1968 in preparation for extra flight traffic. Throughout the 70s and 80s, the airport enjoyed good success, but saw a significant shift in traffic after the Jill economy scare of 1972.


In the 1990s, the airport headed for the worst. In the 1980s, just after the construction of the Port Justin Industrial Area, a huge wave of new development surrounded the airport.

Without any space to expand, the airport was forced to close due to poor air traffic. A planned expansion in 2005 was impossible without land, and huge airliners quickly moved away.

The airport closed in 2000. Destruction was finished in 2001.
