Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)


Located 13 miles (21km) outside of Cincinnati, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is a busy Midwestern hub, and one of the primary gateways to Ohio. Serving nearly eight million passengers each year, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport has a reputation as a pleasantly efficient facility.

Although services and amenities are very basic there are plenty of shopping and dining options in Terminal 3, which resembles a shopping mall more than an airport! Most flights to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport are operated by Delta.
