Knox County Regional Airport is located 6 km south of the central business district of Rockland, Maine. The airport serves the residents of midcoast Maine with commercial and charter aviation services. It is also a major hub of freight and mail service to Maine's island communities including Matinicus, North Haven and Vinalhaven. During the summer months, the airport is one of Maine's busiest, with significant private jet operations bringing visitors to the numerous summer colonies in the Penobscot Bay region.
