Founded in 1927, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is situated just three miles form the central business district of Manchester, New Hampshire. The airport is known known by its original name of Manchester Airport. Boston Regional was added to the end of the name in 2006 to emphasize the airport's 50-mile distance from the city.

The airport was founded after the Manchester's Board of Mayor and Aldermen allocated $15,000 toward its construction. After just one month, the two runways were built to 1,800 feet but the first passenger terminal was not completed until Northeast Airways moved onsite in 1993. In 1961, the airport gained a second terminal at the cost of $850,000.

A long-term expansion project that spanned over the following two years began at Manchester Airport in 1992. Features included new terminal to allow room for larger jets, a new parking garage, several parking lots, and the reconstruction fo the current runways and taxiways. The year 1998 saw the inclusion of MetroJet, Northwest Airlines, and Southwest Airlines opening services at the airport. The addition of these airlines and the expansions to the airport helped Manchester Regional see more passenger growth than any other similar sized airport during the 1990s.

Manchester-Boston Regional is the fourth largest airport in New England in terms of passengers. By 1997, the airport was transporting more than one million passengers a year. A peak was reached in 2005 with a total of 4.33 million but this number dropped to 3.72 million by 2008. The airport is also the third largest cargo airport in New England seeing a total of 150 million pounds of freight flown by FedEx, UPS, DHL and some other carriers in 2005. UPS in particular use Manchester-Boston Airport as a sorting center for freight bound to other destinations in New England.

Spanning an area of 1,500 acres, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport hosts two asphalt paved runways and the New Hampshire Aviation Museum. It is famous for never ceasing to operate no matter what the weather. The only time it has ever closed was for the two days following September 11, 2001, when all national airports were required to stop operating. The airport is considered an alternative to Logan International Airport by the municipalities in the Boston Metropolitan Area. This has so far avoided the need to build a new airport to cover air traffic in the area.
