Capital Region Airport Authority
The Capital Region Airport Authority (CRAA) was created in 1970 pursuant to Act No. 73 of the Public Acts of Michigan. From 1929 until 1971, Capital Region International Airport was owned and operated by the State of Michigan and governed by the Michigan Aeronautics Commission. A regional authority was created in 1971, with the City of Lansing and Ingham County. Studies have shown that Capital Region International Airport contributes approximately $1 billion annually to the regional economy.
CRAA established and manages Port Lansing to increase the region’s involvement in global commerce. Since 2008, Port Lansing has been an official US Port-of-Entry, allowing for international passengers and freight to move through Lansing. CRAA is a strong partner with the LRCC and the Chamber’s international business efforts. Learn more about CRAA at www.flylansing.com and www.portlansing.com
