Tucson International Airport is a short drive from downtown Tucson. The airport serves fewer than ten airlines and as a result has higher service levels and shorter queues.
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 nine miles (14km) south of downtown Tucson.
