The Immokalee Regional Airport (IMM), situated on 1,333 acres of land located approximately 35 miles northeast of Naples and 110 miles northwest of the Port of Miami, provides tremendous business advantages.
The Airport is in a designated Florida Rural Enterprise Zone and HUB Empowerment Zone. The Florida Rural Enterprise Zone Program supports economic revitalization in high unemployment or otherwise economically disadvantaged areas within the state by offering tax incentives to businesses located within the Enterprise Zone. For information about incentives in the Immokalee Rural Enterprise Zone visit Collier County's Comprehensive Planning website.
The Florida Department of Transportation estimates that IMM has a total local economic impact of almost $2.7M annually.
The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program is a United States Small Business Administration program that provides federal contracting opportunities for qualified small businesses in distressed areas.
Additionally, a 60-acre zone in and around the Airport is a designated Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). The FTZ designation offers companies the convenience of deferring any duties or taxes until the business ships the goods outside of the FTZ.
The airport is also used for aerial firefighting and crop dusting operations, and is home to IHRA sanctioned weekend drag racing.

History of Immokalee Regional Airport
The Immokalee Regional Airport was originally a WWII bomber-training base. The Federal Surplus Act eventually turned the airport over to the county in the 1960s. For approximately thirty years, the airport sat dormant. Shortly after its creation in 1993, the Collier County Airport Authority drew up innovative plans for the site, including extensive designs to expand the runways, bring in cargo-carrying businesses, and turn some of the land into an industrial park.
Initial grants helped to build a fuel farm, a road, two hangars, a ramp, taxiway, and the first building. Over time, the original plans of the Authority have changed to suit the burgeoning airfield, but the long-term goals remained essentially the same: to turn the old airfield into a viable industrial park that would attract manufacturing businesses that will hire and train local workers, to bring in international cargo carriers and U.S.Customs officials, and to contribute new and vital industry to the local economy.
