Arriving by Air

The Panama City-Bay County International Airport is only 17 miles northeast of Carillon Beach. The airport designation is ECP.

This is the first international airport built in the U.S.A. in over a decade – convenient to both Panama City, Panama City Beach, and the Beaches of South Walton.

The Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) is a state of the art facility with lots of green eco-friendly features and flyer-friendly amenities. Prices for initial flights out of the new facility have been much lower than from the old Panama City-Bay County International Airport (PFN) which will now be closed. Sheltair is a fixed base operation (FBO) at the new airport if you fly a private plane.
