Quonset State Airport is one of Rhode Island’s best kept secrets. While on approach from the south, one encounters great views of the beautiful Narragansett Bay along with Block Island, Newport, and the sprawling shore line that gives Rhode Island the nickname, “The Ocean State.” Inbound from the North, you’ll fly over Providence, the Renaissance City.
The airport, home to Rhode Island’s Air National Guard and Army National Guard, accommodates all types of aircraft, from war birds and single engine aircraft to personal and business jets. The airport’s close proximity to Newport, downtown Providence, Foxwood and Mohegan Sun Casinos, and Boston make it an attractive and convenient hub for both passengers and crews.
When you need to fly, our knowledgeable, highly trained staff will provide you with informed and timely information that will keep your travel plans on schedule. Likewise, airport maintenance crews work tirelessly to keep our airfield safe and operational, even during the most challenging weather conditions.
