Airport Layout Plan 

The Airport Layout Plan (ALP) serves as a critical planning tool that depicts both existing facilities and planned development for an airport. Sponsors of airport development carried out at federally obligated airports must accomplish the improvement in accordance with an FAA-approved ALP. (AIP Sponsor Guide - 500)

Intermodal Feasibility Study 

The Intermodal Feasibility Study recommends potential revenue enhancement initiatives along with policy and managerial strategies to improve the Airport's financial performance. The recommended plan of action from this report rests on seven primary strategic initiatives including: attract airline service, secure U.S. Customs and Border Protection, attract more MRO activity, increase GA and Military activity, increase intermodal use of the Airport, non-aviation property development, and airport rebranding.

Master Plan (Executive Summary) 

The primary purpose of the Airport Master Plan is to provide guidance for the future development of the airport which will satisfy the aviation demand in a financially feasible and responsible manner, while addressing the aviation, environmental, and socioeconomic issues of the community. This Executive Summary was prepared as part of the Airport Master Plan for the Lakeland Linder International Airport and provides recommendations for airport facilities needed to accommodate air traveling passengers, and aircraft operations through the 2020 planning year horizon. Lakeland Linder International Airport Master Plan Update Executive Summary was approved by the Lakeland City Commission in September 2011.

Minimum Standards

Lakeland Linder International Airport's Minimum Standards were developed to provide the minimum threshold entry requirements for those desiring to conduct Commercial Aeronautical Activities to the public at the Airport and provide reasonable opportunities without unjust discrimination. The Minimum Standards are established based upon the conditions at the Airport, the existing and planned facilities at the Airport, and the current and future aviation role of the Airport. Any prospective commercial operator will be required to provide the prescribed minimum level of services contained herein, in order to enter into an agreement, permit, or lease with the City to operate on the Airport. All commercial operators are encouraged to exceed the “minimum” in terms of quality of facilities and/or services. The purpose of the Minimum Standards are to: 

- Promote safety
- Promote the economic health of airport businesses
- Promote the orderly development of airport property
- Encourage high quality products, services and facilities to airport users
- Encourage and promote activities that will compliment the area surrounding the airport

In summary, the Minimum Standards establish the minimum requirements to be met by individuals and companies for the privilege of providing Commercial Aeronautical Activities at the Airport. The Airport's Minimum Standards were adopted by the Lakeland City Commission on March 7, 2011.

Lakeland Linder International Airport requires those tenants and users wishing to host non-aeronautical activities on airport property fill out this form and return it to the Airport Administration Office for consideration and submittal to the FAA.

Rules and Regulations
