Airports in Cincinatti

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.

While it's an international airport, nearly all routes are domestic with short flights to Atlanta and Chicago being the most popular. The airport's small size puts it at a disadvantage in the winter, when de-icing aircraft and runways can cause longer delays than in larger facilities.


The airport is situated 13 miles (21km) south of downtown Cincinnati.

Getting to the city

TANK public bus services are available between the airport and downtown Cincinnati and Covington, seven days a week. Executive Transportation offers a shuttle service that can take passengers directly to hotels and other locations in downtown Cincinnati and Covington for a fee.


GMT -5 (GMT -4 from mid-March to the first Sunday in November).
