Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is not part of any city but is nestled among several. The airport is surrounded by Minneapolis, St. Paul and the suburban cities of Bloomington, Eagan, Mendota Heights and Richfield.

MSP has one airfield with four runways and two terminal buildings - theTerminal 1-Lindbergh and Terminal 2-Humphrey -each with adjoining parking ramp facilities. Travelers who need to transfer from one terminal to the other use the light rail transit service. There is no pedestrian access between the buildings.

The airport is managed and run by the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), a public corporation established in 1943 by the Minnesota State legislature to provide for coordinated aviation services throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

MSP Ranking and Awards

In 2012, MSP served 33 million passengers and accommodated 425,332 landings and takeoffs making it 16th in North America for the number of travelers served.

MSP's 3,400 acres arguably comprise the most valuable economic generator between the St. Croix River and Seattle, supporting more than 76,000 jobs, $10.1 billion in business revenue, $3 billion in personal income, $1.9 billion in local purchases, and $611 million in state and local taxes.

The airport and its leadership have received various awards in numerous categories, including safety, fiscal management, labor relations, legal oversight, snow and ice control, concessions, airport design and development, and marketing and communications.

Most recently, in 2012, Airport Revenue News, the industry leader in airport concession news, awarded MSP its Frequent Traveler Award for the Airport with the Best Retail Design .


The MAC uses funds from concession revenues, lease agreements and airline fees to operate the airport. Funding for airport improvements comes primarily from passenger facility charges, federal grants and bond sales as well as from revenue generated through airport operations.

Unlike other public organizations in Minnesota, the MAC receives no operations funding from state, federal or local income, sales or property taxes.

In 2012, 37 percent of revenues came from airline rates and charges, 46 percent from parking and concessions, and 17 percent from other sources, such as building and ground rents.



Covered parking is available in ramps across from both terminals at MSP. Both ramps are connected to the terminals via climate-controlled skyways.
