2021 Jon K. Thompson World Class Tour dates
|In-person World Class Tours are suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Special virtual World Class Tour dates will be announced here as they’re planned.
Named after Jon K. Thompson, one of the Airport Authority’s longest-serving board members and one of the leaders of the original “Airport World Class Tour”, this tour gives Memphians a better look at the airport’s operations and a better understanding about the important role MEM plays in the Mid-South economy.
Activities begin with presentations on the airport’s history, current activities, finances, projects and air service development efforts. The presentations are followed by a comprehensive bus tour of the airfield, the FedEx World Hub and the Tennessee Air National Guard base.
