Capt. Robert L. Martin Terminal
Welcome to the Captain Robert L. Martin Terminal!
In mid-2020, the Dubuque Regional Airport Commission voted to name the airport terminal after Captain Robert L. Martin, a Dubuque native who flew more than 60 missions as a member of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II. The suggestion to name the terminal for Martin was supported by more than 4,000 community members who signed a petition in favor of the proposal. After supporters raised more than $100,000 to fund creation of memorial signage, the airport hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially name the terminal for Martin in July 2022.
The City of Dubuque has been served by an airport in some way, shape, or form since 1928. It moved to its current location and was initially known as the Dubuque Municipal Airport in 1948. Forty years later, the name was changed to the Dubuque Regional Airport. Construction on the current terminal was completed in 2016 at a cost of roughly $37 million. The renovations expanded the terminal's footprint by more than three times
The current terminal offers both free Wi-Fi and free parking for visitors. Additional amenities include an ATM, food and beverage sales within the secure waiting area, electronic charging stations, geo-thermal heating and cooling, digital wayfinding signage, and more.
