Airport runway closure to cause flight pattern change


As part of the Daytona Beach International Airport’s taxiway rehabilitation project, the airport’s main air carrier runway closed from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Aug. 17 for approximately 32 nights.

Beginning Sept. 21, the main carrier runway will be closed 24/7 for approximately 20 days.

The closures will not impact airline operations but will affect flight patterns. Neighbors of the airport may notice a change in flight patterns and an increase in north-south flight traffic during the closure.

The airport began a two-year project in April 2018 to rehabilitate three taxiways, including the main air carrier taxiway. For more information on the project, visit
