The Quad City International Airport is operated by the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County, Illinois. In 1935 the city of Moline, Illinois, took over the airport as a municipal, tax supported airport. The second largest Work Projects Administration project in Illinois was underway at a cost to Moline of $165,000 and $365,000 to the federal government. A new terminal and hangar were built in 1939 with five scheduled air carrier flights per day and 24 private aircraft based on airport property. Rock Island County citizens voted in 1947 to buy the airport creating the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County, Illinois, (MAA) as its owner. Ozark Air Lines began service at the airport in 1950. In 1954 a terminal building was built to provide space for United and Ozark Airlines, as well as limousine service, car rentals, the Civil Aeronautics Administration, and the U. S. Weather Bureau. In March, 1985, the new terminal, parking lot, and roadway system were completed. Another significant milestone was reached in 2001 with the opening of two state-of-the-art concourses, new concessions, and art gallery. Since that time a number of renovation and expansion projects have impacted the airport property.
