The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport invites applications for the position of Airport Engineer.

SAV has selected Steven Baldwin Associates to conduct a confidential, national search for this position.

The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is a world-class, award-winning airport, which has seen record-setting growth over the past four years and has been named to several recent “best of” lists for U.S. airports and cities.

Not only did the Airport receive the 2019 Hospitality Business of the Year Award from the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, SAV was named the No. 4 Airport in the United States according to the Travel + Leisure’s coveted World’s Best Awards. Savannah has been in the top five destinations of the 15-city list since 2016. 


The year 2019 was one of notable growth and expansion, as well as praise and honors, for Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. Throughout the year, a total of 3,021,077 passengers passed through the Airport—making 2019 the fourth consecutive record-breaking year for passenger numbers at SAV. Passenger growth has consecutively increased as a result of increased air service, new seasonal offerings, and award-winning facilities and customer service. New flight destinations take advantage of Savannah’s and Hilton Head’s ever-increasing draw as a major tourist destination. Total enplanements grew 8% from 2018 to 2019, for an all-time record of total passengers.


The Airport has an operating budget of $30 million for 2019 and employs approximately 210 people. With a slate of ambitious capital projects of renovation and expansion—including the announcement of five new non-stop flights—the Airport is well-positioned to withstand the impacts and challenges of 2020.

The Position: Airport Engineer

  • Offering an exciting, collegial, and family-welcoming working environment, the Airport is seeking an experienced Airport Engineer who can assist in the administration of the Airport engineering department (including employee management and supervision, budget development, onboarding, and training) and who is motivated to shape the future of the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. SAV is seeking a professional engineer who shares a passion for providing a safe, secure, and efficient facility and for providing air service that promotes the economic development of the Airport and the region. This is an ideal opportunity for a highly motivated and results-oriented individual who possesses in-depth knowledge in the theories, principles, practices, and techniques related to civil, mechanical, and structural engineering; architecture; and capital project delivery and who will work toward the Airport’s strategic vision.
