In addition to the Bob Sikes Airport, the Okaloosa County Airports System is comprised of two additional airports, the Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) and the Destin Executive Airport (DTS).
The Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) is the commercial service airport for the Florida Gulf Coast. Located 20 miles to the south on Eglin Air Force Base, the airport currently has four (4) airlines serving over 800,000 passengers per year with direct service to Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas and Houston. The 116,000 square foot modern terminal was completed in 2004 with great fanfare and was selected as the Outstanding Commercial Service Airport of the year by the Florida Department of Transportation for aesthetics, safety and service. Shortly thereafter, the terminal received top awards in state and nationwide competitions by the Association of Builders and Contractors.

Destin Executive Airport (DTS) is located in the south end of the county and has a 5,000 foot runway and is predominately utilized by large private and corporate aircraft due to its close proximity to “the south’s most beautiful beaches” and high end resort facilities. The new terminal was completed in 2007 and offers comfortable first class facilities for travelers and pilots alike.
