In recognizing the necessity of protecting the public health, safety, and interest in the Oklahoma City-owned airports, and in order to foster, encourage, and insure the economic growth and orderly development of Aeronautical Activities, pursuant to Federal Aviation Administration requirements for federally obligated airports, the Oklahoma City Airport Trust has adopted the following:

Airport Strategic Development Program – Will Rogers World Airport

This program identifies commercial development opportunities for Airport properties and establishes a business planning approach for the leasing of the properties at the Airport, including the development of vacant land located on the east side of the Airport property.

In addition to the existing Minimum Standards for Aeronautical Activities and Leasing of Land and Facilities at Oklahoma City Airports, this Program includes components designed to provide flexibility to changing market conditions related to development of Airport property, changes to federal, state and local laws and regulations pertaining to Airport development, the dynamics of the aviation industry, and economic forces affecting commercial development.

Commercial Land Leasing Policy

The Commercial Land Leasing Policy provides the criteria for non-aviation commercial uses, such as retail, office, industrial, and commercial air cargo.

Minimum Standards for Aeronautical Activities and Leasing of Land and Facilities at OKC Airports

The Minimum Standards are the minimum requirements for a person or persons, partnership, company, trust, or corporation to engage in one or more aeronautical activities at Will Rogers World Airport, Wiley Post Airport or Clarence E. Page airport.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) Programs

The Oklahoma City Airport Trust encourages qualified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) to bid or to partner with a bidding contractor on all our construction contracts or equipment purchases especially those receiving federal assistance. Likewise, on concession solicitations any qualified Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (ACDBE) is encouraged to bid or propose directly as a concessionaire or to contract, partner or enter into a joint venture with a concessionaire to supply services, materials, or equipment.

Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) Tarmac Delay Plan

OKC has prepared this Emergency Contingency Plan pursuant to §42301 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.  Questions regarding this plan can be directed to Jim Thrash at Will Rogers World Airport, 7100 Terminal Dr, Unit 937, OKC, OK  73159-0937.  OKC is filing this plan with the Department of Transportation because (1) it is a commercial airport or (2) this airport may be used by an air carrier described in USC 42301(a)(1) for diversions.  This plan is updated every five years as required by the FAA.  The plan describes how, following excessive tarmac delays and to the extent practicable, OKC will: 

  • Provide for the deplanement of passengers;
  • Provide for the sharing of facilities and make gates available at the airport; and
  • Provide a sterile area following excessive tarmac delays for passengers who have not yet cleared United States Customs & Border Protection (CBP).
