New Bedford Airport Map

New Bedford Airport is accessible from Routes 140 and 195 in New Bedford.
From Rt 140 take Hathaway Road to Shawmut Ave. Go Left on Shawmut Ave and you'll get to the airport. The red star designates the location of the lobby and tower.

There is also a restaurant there. Often it was called the "Airport Grille" in the same building as the tower - 1569 Airport Rd.
As you can see on the map, you would follow Shawmut Ave. It seems to be that the street name of that way becomes Airport Road somewhere along the line there.
Read the History of the New Bedford Airport begun 1940 - 1942 here.
