Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport [ [ Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport] , official web site] [ [ Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport] at Vermont Airport Directory] airport codes|RUT|KRUT|RUT, formerly known as Rutland State Airport, is a state-owned public-use airport located in North Clarendon, five miles (8 km) south of the central business district of Rutland, a city in Rutland County, Vermont, United States. Scheduled commercial service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service and provided by Cape Air, with three flights daily on nine-passenger Cessna 402 aircraft to Boston.

As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 2,689 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2004. [ FAA Passenger Boarding and All-Cargo Data] ] In the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (2007-2011) it was a categorized as a "commercial service" airport, which requires at least 2,500 passenger boardings per year. [ [ FAA National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems] ] However, enplanements declined to 2,218 in 2005 and 2,245 in 2006 which caused it to be categorized as a "general aviation" airport.

Name change

Legislation was introduced into the Vermont Senate in January 2007 to change the official name of the airport to Rutland–Southern Vermont Regional Airport. [ [ Vermont Legislative: 2007-2008 Session, Bill S.0033: The Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional Airport] ] The state agency of transportation, meanwhile, had plans to change the name to Rutland/Southwest Vermont Regional Airport. This provoked some opposition from the town of Bennington on the grounds that the William H. Morse State Airport (located in the town), is currently known as "Southwest Vermont's Airport". The agency indicated that it intended to go ahead with the name change anyway, claiming that Bennington's opposition came too late in the process. [cite news | url= | title= Bennington sought say in airport renaming | work= Rutland Herald | date= 2007-01-26] However, the agency changed the name to Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport on August 15, 2007.
