Most Destin visitors flying commercial airlines come through Fort Walton Beach’s airport, known as  the “Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport” (VPS). “Destin Executive Airport (DTS)” caters to private and general aviation aircraft. 

When choosing your airport, consider your budget, desired travel experience, and connection options. VPS offers more convenience and flight options, while DTS shines for private travel. Regardless of your choice, both airports provide access to the stunning beaches and vibrant atmosphere of Destin and Fort Walton Beach!

Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS): This is the primary airport serving the area and boasts convenient access to both Destin and Fort Walton Beach. VPS offers a diverse selection of airlines, including major carriers like American, Delta, and Southwest, alongside budget-friendly options like Allegiant and Sun Country. This variety ensures competitive fares and plenty of flight options to fit your travel needs. With nonstop service to major hubs across the US, VPS makes accessing this coastal paradise a breeze.

Destin Executive Airport (DTS): While smaller than VPS, DTS caters to private and general aviation aircraft. If you’re flying in on a private jet or chartering a plane, DTS provides a more personalized and exclusive experience. However, due to its limited commercial operations, it’s not suitable for most travelers seeking traditional airline flights.
