Will Rogers World Airport: location and destinations
The Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) is an airport in Oklahoma city, Oklahoma, US, used for both commercial and military flights. Since 1941, the airport has borne the name of the famous humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers. He is also thought to be the world’s first “frequent flyer” - he took practically every chance to board a plane.
WRA was first opened in 1911 and was originally named Oklahoma City Municipal Airfield. The US Air Force used the airport as a training facility during WWII. After the war the airport remained an important military base. However, civilians could also use it to fly to nearby states like New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado.
In 2001, thanks to Great Plains Airlines WRA became an important regional hub and continues to serve this role until today.
The airport only has one terminal that has been expanded and renovated many times throughout the last decades.
