About Us

Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) is proud to be the easy choice for air travelers and serving as the "Gateway to the Crystal Coast and Outer Banks." Located in Historic New Bern, EWN serves the surrounding counties of  Craven, Pamlico, Jones, and Carteret counties; a gateway to historic New Bern, the Crystal Coast, and Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

EWN is a modern, full-service airport capable of supporting a wide range of commercial or private aviation activities. Coastal Carolina Regional Airport is governed by an independent Airport Authority and operates as a financially self-sustaining facility that does not rely on municipal funding from tax revenue.

The airport operates day-to-day as part public service utility and part business enterprise ensuring that all safety standards and security regulations are upheld while delivering a level of customer service expected by our passengers.  The airport is consistently making systematic upgrades to facilities and infrastructure to meet programmed planning objectives; certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, required by the Transportation Security Administration, and expected by the traveling public.

We are one of only 10 commercial air service airports in the state and we are always negotiating with current and potential air carriers to provide our travelers with the best possible service at the lowest possible fare. Currently, the airport is served by American Airlines offering multiple daily flights, American flies direct to Charlotte, the fifth busiest airport in the United States.

Our business and general aviation aircraft community is served by a modern and well-appointed terminal located on the north side of the airfield surrounded by a wide variety of leased and privately owned aircraft hangars.  Tidewater Air, the fixed-base operator, offers full-service aviation support functions including an aircraft maintenance facility and a flight training center.   Local and visiting general aviation pilots will find a friendly airport operating environment located in class delta airspace controlled by top-notch air traffic controllers and governed by reasonable airport rules and regulations aimed at preserving all federal airport minimum standards.

We are proud to serve eastern North Carolina as the airport of choice for air travel during business or pleasure, in either commercial or general aviation aircraft. Thank you and safe travels.
