Mobile International Airport

The Mobile Airport is relocating the new international airport terminal to downtown Mobile. The new terminal is part of a multi-year plan to relocate commercial airline flights from West Mobile to the more centrally located Brookley Mobile Aeroplex.

The five-gate terminal at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley will open in 2025. It will serve as the new commercial travel hub for Baldwin County, located just 15 minutes from Spanish Fort off Interstate 10, compared to Pensacola International Airport, a 50-minute drive from central Baldwin County, and Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, which is a 75-minute drive.
