It started as the Longview Flying Field in 1924.

It became J.D. Hill Airport in 1928, Latrobe Airport in 1935 and Westmoreland County Airport in 1978.
Complimenting a rich history rooted in some of the earliest pioneers of aviation, the name was changed to Arnold Palmer Regional in 1999 to honor the Youngstown native golf legend who grew up less than a mile from the runway where he watched the world’s first official airmail pickup in 1939 and later learned to fly himself.
But pilots, air-traffic controllers and airlines still call it LBE.

Nestled in the scenic Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania and operated by the Westmoreland County Airport Authority, the airport is located on 750 acres along routes 30 and 981 in Unity Township. The Airport offers more than just an updated terminal and air-traffic control tower and a newly extended 8,224-foot-long runway.

To further a longstanding tradition of providing the best in travel opportunities, Arnold Palmer Regional Airport is also one of the area’s
most elegant restaurant, conference and banquet facilities.

There’s also a full-service travel agency and automobile rental options. And, there are many area lodging facilites nearby.

Throw in some features you won’t find elsewhere – like free parking, short screening lines and a fast baggage claim — and you’ll see convenience and comfort levels are higher here than you might have expected.

For one, you won’t need a bus to take you back to your car after you land.


So, leave the parkway traffic on the ground where it belongs and step up to the world of hassle-free travel.

Did we mention that the parking is free?
