The following article is brought to you by the dog bite law firm in Northeast Philadelphia Airport. Our lawyers hope you can learn more about the airport and its surrounding areas.

History of Northeast Philadelphia Airport

Northeast Philadelphia Airport was established in the 1930s as the Northeast Airport. The grass field was one of three small airports in the area and had no paved runways. During World War II, the U.S. Army Air Corps began developing a 545-acre airbase in Northeast Philadelphia. However, the project wasn't completed and the property was handed over to the city in 1944. In June 1945, the Philadelphia Northeast Airport was opened. In 1948, its name was changed to North Philadelphia Airport and later to Northeast Philadelphia Airport in 1980.

Today, the airport encompasses 1,150 acres of land and includes two asphalt runways, 37,933 aircraft operations and 132 based aircraft. It is bounded by Comly Road to the north, Academy Road to the east, Grant Avenue to the south, and Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1) to the west. Residential areas surrounding the airport include Krestown, Bustleton, Somerton, Parkwood, Millbrook, Morrell Park and Torresdale. Developments located on the property of the airport are a Pepsi-Cola bottling plant, the headquarters of the first and eighth Districts of the Philadelphia Police Department, an industrial park with aviation-related businesses, a TJMaxx distribution center, and an ice skating rink.
