Airport Boundaries

Airport Boundaries delineates the geographic boundaries of public and private airport facilities. Individual airport boundaries include associated terminals, hangars, maintenance and outbuildings, runways, tarmacs, helipads and parking areas (including satellite parking lots).

Airport Boundaries is primarily based on authoritative data feeds from the Federal Aeronautical Administration (FAA) including data from the National Flight Data Center (NFDC). Pitney Bowes continually reviews these and other sources to maintain and update the airport boundary currency and representation.

  • Target travelers effectively: Create geofences and identify consumers who travel. Location-based marketing campaigns can even push relevant messages to mobile devices and trigger real-time deals exactly when one’s flight lands. 
  • Add context to any map display.
