Phoenix Airport And Roads

There are 100 cities served by Sky Harbor and it accommodates known airlines such as British Airways, WestJet, Air Canada and other carriers that bring in and bring out passengers to and fro countries like Canada, London, Mexico, and Asia.

 Smaller airports in Phoenix also exist. Commercial air traffic in Mesa called Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is now being worked on to lessen the weight of flights in the Sky Harbor. Formerly, it was the William Air Force Base which came to be commercial air traffic after it was closed in 1993. These days, it received charter airlines like Boeing 737s which usually bring in passengers to destinations just near the area. For smaller airports, the Deer Valley district has a small airport called Phoenix Deer Valley Airport which only caters to private and corporate jets.
