Ashtabula County Airport Authority

Northeast Ohio Regional Airport is owned and operated by the Ashtabula County Airport Authority.

The Ashtabula County Airport Authority consists of eleven members from the community and an Airport Manager – Secretary/Treasurer. Members serve four year terms. Members of the Board of Directors are appointed by the Ashtabula County Commissioners. County residents can apply for an appointment to one of the open seats by filling out an application and submitting it to the Commissioners for consideration. Appointments are made in December of the year prior to expiration of the member’s term. The Airport Authority meets on the second Thursday of the month.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors helps to ensure that the Northeast Ohio Regional Airport continues to run smoothly and that the investments made in the airport are used to their fullest potential.  Thanks to the vision of Robert S.
