Lansing Airport

Lansing Capital Region International Airport (LAN)


Also known as Capital City Region International Airport, Lansing Capital City Airport is located just three miles (5km) northwest of Lansing, Michigan. Despite its important-sounding name, the airport is very small, processing just more than 250,000 passengers each year.

Lansing Capital City Airport has limited facilities, with only a few gift shops and cafés to keep passengers entertained while they wait for their flights. Thus a good book and an mp3 player are essential for whiling away a layover in Lansing.

Although it is conveniently located near downtown Lansing, the airport also has the drawback of being more expensive to fly into than facilities in Detroit.


The airport is located three miles (5km) northwest of downtown Lansing.
