Friday Harbor Airport
Welcome to the islands! Friday Harbor Airport (KFHR) is the premier aviation destination in the San Juan Islands. At Friday Harbor, it’s only minutes between big cities and the great outdoors. The Roy Franklin terminal accommodates over 16,000 passengers per year with scheduled flights to Seattle, Bellingham, and Anacortes and charter service to the other islands. Friday Harbor airport is a US Customs point of entry and serves the commercial, general aviation and corporate air transportation needs of the islands. General aviation pilots are welcome to tie down in transient parking for a few hours or a few days. Friday Harbor airport is just a short walk from town where visitors can spend an afternoon browsing the shops or enjoy a meal on the airfield at Ernie’s Café.
Friday Harbor Airport began as a dream for Roy Franklin, the founder of Island Sky Ferries. When he began his charter service in 1948, he landed his Stinson ‘Bushman’ in a cow pasture west of town with the aid of headlights from parked cars. Whether transporting patients during medical emergencies or flying work crews to outlying islands, Roy Franklin embodied the spirit of American aviation. The airport now boasts a well-maintained 3400 by 75 foot runway with medium intensity runway lighting, 45 aircraft tie-downs for guests, 52 port-owned hangars, 53 privately owned hangars and 123 based aircraft.
So, whether you’re here for a day, a month or for years, Friday Harbor Airport will be here to serve you and the San Juan Islands.
