Originally constructed as an auxiliary flight training facility for the U.S. Navy, the airport was converted to a municipal facility after World War II. It is jointly owned by the City of Newton and Harvey County, and a nine-member Aviation Commission acts as an advisory group to the City and Harvey County Commissioners.

Today, EWK primarily serves Harvey County as a transport facility, but has been designated by the FAA as a general aviation reliever airport for Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport.

Newton City/County Airport's primary runway is over 7,000 feet long with an ILS and GPS approach. Enjoy big airport services including radar coverage right down to the ramp without the hassles of a control tower.

A modern 3,870 square foot terminal features a fully equipped pilot lounge and seating area, administrative offices and conference room. The addition of an enclosed observation vestibule provides a comfortable area for public viewing of flight-line operations. Wi-Fi Internet is provided for the convenience of airport guests.

The airport has over 14 businesses based on the airfield that offer numerous functions to the airport, including flight instruction, airframe and power plant maintenance and repairs, award-winning aircraft restoration, as well as new and used aircraft sales, ferrying and delivery.

There are 85 T-hangars and over 135 based aircraft.
