Notice of Airport Road Construction

Lexington Avenue leading to our terminal building (orange markings on the photo) will be closed for complete rehab of the road! While this is exciting, it will mean that airport users will have to detour slightly. The south entrance (Berry Road to Westheimer Drive) and the north entrance (Flood Avenue to Goddard Avenue) will be available options to get around the construction. Construction is set to begin Monday, April 10th, 2023.

This construction is estimated to take 2-3 weeks dependent on weather and any unforeseen circumstances.

Thank you for your patience!

OU Max Westheimer Airport Warns of Online Pet Scams

Max Westheimer Airport at the University of Oklahoma has been made aware of a growing online scam involving the purchase and shipping of pets. In many cases, scammers are taking payment for the pets, claiming to ship them to Max Westheimer Airport and requesting additional money from their victims.

Some websites are also providing fake tracking numbers once payment has been made. Others have listed phone numbers that may look legitimate but have too many digits or do not coincide with the company’s location. Before working with a business for the first time, customers should always confirm its contact information and location with the Better Business Bureau at

As a reminder, pets are primarily shipped through major airlines or private charter companies – UPS and FedEx do not ship most animals, including dogs and cats. If the shipper is using a private charter or private airline, the customer should get specific information as to the name of the airport and the name of the company where the animal will be delivered. No company should ask for additional money after the pet is shipped. All shipping costs, including insurance, vaccinations, crates and quarantine should be included in the initial shipping fee. 

If you believe you are a victim of this scam, you can file a report with the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center at
