Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport is self-supporting using no local or state tax dollars for operations or capital improvements. Clinton National is funded primarily by fees paid by airport users, including airlines, passengers and businesses that operate at the airport. The airport generates more than $1.2 billion in annual economic benefit.
During the past four years, the airport has generated more than $45 million in taxes for the state of Arkansas, city of Little Rock and Pulaski County. As a net tax generator, Clinton National Airport does not drain valuable tax dollars away from important government services.
Nearly 3,000 jobs are provided on the airport's 2,100 acres.
