Toledo Express Airport is a passenger and cargo airport located 10 miles (16 km) west of the city of Toledo in the extreme Western portion of Lucas County, Ohio, United States, near the border with Fulton County, in the townships of Swanton and Monclova. It is also a base for the Ohio Air National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing. As well as being a main airport for Toledo, it is also a secondary airport for Detroit, Michigan, and serves as a regional hub for smaller communities and rural areas in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. The airport is operated by the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. Toledo Express served 182,827 passengers in 2009, a 27% drop from 2008 (250,876). This ranked TOL 174th in North America.

They operated approximately 20 flights on average (with a peak of 42) per night from across the United States.
