Here's some information on Savannah International Airport, sourced from Wikipedia:
Despite the airport's name, there are currently no scheduled commercial international flights outside the United States from Savannah/Hilton Head. However, U.S. Customs facilities are on the field and the airport is part of a Foreign Trade Zone. The airport serves as world headquarters for Gulfstream Aerospace. The Georgia Air National Guard's 165th Airlift Wing is also based at Savannah/Hilton Head International.

Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport was originally named Chatham Field and developed as a Works Progress Administration project at Cherokee Hill, one of the highest elevations in Chatham County, Georgia. In 1939 Congress had instituted a program to improve the nation's airport infrastructure in the interest of National Defense. If local governments provided the land, the Federal Government would fund construction of the airport. The City then approached the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) about the possibility of building a an airport at Cherokee Hill. The CAA accepted this proposal informing the City that as much as $400,000 would be allocated for construction of three 4,000-ft. runways.

By the time the project got underway in 1941, the United States was on an unalterable road to war and the Army Air Corps as well as the Navy took an interest in the strategically located coastal airport.
