The Datona Beach International Airport is conveniently located near hotels, business centers and downtown areas.

    Before planes were landing on the beach, thee was automobile racing. The beach had a smooth, hard, and relatively clean surface for anything with wheels and speed. Pilots soon discovered this and used the beach as a runway. Hangars were later built and aircraft service was avaiable on beach. This former airport is one of only two beach airports that were successful. The other, Old Orchard Beach in Maine, was the starting point for at least five transatlantic flights during the 1920s and 1930s. The first beach flight was in 1906 by Charles K. Hamilton, using Israel Ludlow's glider. The glider was pulled by an automobile and actually took place in Ormond. He went as high as 150 feet on his initial try, and 250 feet on the second, before crashing into a flagpole and surviving with only a bruised knee

It is the Orlando area's secondary commercial airport, but is farther from downtown Orlando and the major theme parks (Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, and SeaWorld Orlando) than the primary airport, Orlando International Airport (MCO/KMCO). Because of that affiliation, passenger traffic at Orlando Sanford International Airport was once dominated by European charter carrier service. Since 2008, however, a majority of its passenger traffic has been domestic; this is attributable to the entrance of Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air, for which Sanford is a focus city.

    The airport covers 3,000 acres and has four runways: Runway 9L/27R: 11,002 x 150 ft. Asphalt. Runway 9C/27C: 3,578 x 75 ft. Asphalt. Runway 9R/27L: 6,647 x 75 ft.  Asphalt. Runway 18/36: 6,002 x 150 ft. Asphalt/Concrete. The main runway is 9L/27R. This was built from the naval air station's original Runway 9/27, which was 8,000 ft x 200 ft. with overruns of 2,145 ft. and 1,985 ft.. A project to extended runway 9L/27R by 1,400 ft to 11,000 ft (3,400 m) was completed on April 1, 2013. Parallel Runways 9C/27C and 9R/27L were built later, the former on a previous taxiway and the latter all-new, for small aircraft. The airport also has Runway 18/36, another Navy runway, for rare northerly fronts in the winter, but this 6000-ft runway is rarely used by airliners.
