Butler Municipal Airport is located one mile north of Butler’s central business district and is owned and operated by Taylor County. The primary runway is 5,000 feet long and constructed of asphalt. The turf crosswind runway is 2,400 feet long. Located on the outskirts of Butler Industrial Park, the airport’s economic impact is approximately $1.3 million annually.
Butler Industrial Park is served by rail, enabling local businesses to reach world markets through the Port of Savannah, the largest single container terminal in North America. And with Taylor County only about one hour from the Cordele Inland Port, some businesses find it more efficient to load and unload at the inland port rail facilities. U.S. Customs and other import/export requirements can be processed on site so that containers can be loaded directly onto the ships at Savannah, bypassing truck queues at the Port.
