Daytona Beach International Airport (IATA: DAB, ICAO: KDAB, FAA LID: DAB) is a public county-owned airport located three miles (5 km) southwest of the central business district of Daytona Beach, adjacent to the Daytona International Speedway, in Volusia County, Florida, United States. The airport has 3 runways, a six-gate domestic terminal, and an international terminal. Daytona Beach serves as the headquarters of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Daytona Beach International Airport is considered to be much more convenient for nearby residents than nearby larger airports such as Orlando International Airport and Jacksonville International Airport.
Currently, Daytona Beach International Airport is served by two carriers, Delta Air Lines with service to Atlanta and US Airways with service to Charlotte. Both airlines provide service to Daytona Beach with a mix of mainline jets such as the Boeing 757-232 operated by Delta (normally seen during race weeks or when the MD-88 isn’t avalible), the Boeing 737 operated by US Airways, and the MD-88 and regional jets. Delta Air Lines is the only airline to use mainline aircraft in Daytona Beach year round, though the frequencies do have a seasonal fluctuation. US Airways regularly uses regional jet aircraft though mainline jets are frequently used during race weeks for the Daytona 500 and sometimes for the Coke Zero 400.
