Fort Lauderdale International Airport

History

When the airport was first established in early May of 1929, it was called the Merle Fogg Field. The airport was originally named after the World War I aviator who relocated to Fort Lauderdale in the 20s to start a flying service. In the early 1940s, the airfield was renamed the Fort Lauderdale Naval Air Station. During World War II, the United States Navy built three runways and a control tower that was used as a training facility.

The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is ranked the 21st airport in the U.S. The airport serves over 23 million passengers every year. Every day, approximately 268 flights from the airport go out to destinations in the U.S. as well as Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America.
