Airports in Tucson

Tucson International Airport (TUS)


Tucson International Airport is a short drive from downtown Tucson. The airport serves fewer than ten airlines. This means that the queues are shorter and general service levels are higher.

Tucson Airport is well connected to Tucson city and houses a number of shops and restaurants to keep travellers entertained. There is also an arts and culture programme, with a number of Mexican-inspired pieces, located at the airport.


The airport is situated eight miles (13km) south of downtown Tucson.

Getting to the city

The Sun Tran bus company operates service into Tucson from the airport on two routes. A standard Sun Tran bus fare is $1.50. Airport shuttles, taxis and rental cars are also available.
