Last month the Cameron County Airport, located just out of Laguna Vista, was awarded $600K to help fund construction of a new fuel system. The federal government will pay 75% of the cost and Cameron County will pay 25%. Airport traffic is increasing to this general aviation terminal. If you fly your own plane, this airport is convenient for those coming to South Padre, Port Isabel, Bayview, and Laguna Vista. Although they don’t have an active tower now, they are an old navy base with long runways. For more information, go to http://www.airnav.com/airport/KPIL .
