A master plan is a document that guides the phased development of the airport over time. The airport's master plan process includes thoughtful forecasting of future activity and plans for an orderly phased development of the airport over time to accommodate that activity.
Based on demographics, current airline industry conditions, trends in general aviation, historic growth and economic conditions, the airport and its consulting team have made plans for future facility improvements to accommodate both the immediate and long-term needs of both the commercial airlines and our general aviation community. Preparing for these changes now will allow Blue Grass Airport to meet the aviation needs of Lexington and central Kentucky in the future.

The 2013 Airport Master Plan Update is focused on developing a comprehensive assessment of "core" infrastructure needs that take into consideration valuable input from stakeholders and community partners.
