Information

About Minneapolis St Paul Airport

Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in the five-state upper Midwestern region of Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

In terms of passengers, Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport is the twelfth busiest airport in the United States and twenty-first largest airport in the world. Airlines out of Minneapolis/St. Paul International airport serve 131 nonstop destinations.

The airport, including both passenger terminal buildings, is mostly located in Fort Snelling in Hennepin County. It is the largest 'origin and destination' airport for Northwest Airlines, Northwest Airlink partners Compass Airlines, Mesaba Airlines, and Pinnacle Airlines, in terms of passengers carried, although it ranks second to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in terms of Northwest's busiest hubs overall.

The airport first came into being when several local groups came together to take control of the former bankrupt Twin City Speedway race track, giving the airport its original name, Speedway Field. In 1944, the site was renamed to Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan Airport/Wold-Chamberlain Field, with "International" replacing "Metropolitan" four years later.
