MAC Turns 75 In 2018

Published in Midwest Flyer – April/May 2018

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) marks its 75th anniversary in 2018, but the idea of creating a single government entity to own and operate Twin Cities’ airports only came about with some diplomacy following years of spirited competition. Long before MAC became the airport’s owner and operator, air travel in the Twin Cities went through a series of boom-and-partial-bust periods. The Roaring 20s, the Great Depression and the build-up to World War II, all influenced the growth of what is now Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (KMSP), and to create a governing board to promote the growth of aviation in the Twin Cities.
