At the intersection of two major U.S. highways (I-70 and I-71), Columbus’ central location is within a day’s drive of half of the nation’s population. In fact, many groups who chose Columbus have had record-breaking attendance.
John Glenn Columbus International Airport is only 10 minutes from downtown Columbus and offers 34 non-stop destinations by all major airlines, including (in order of the most flights) American, Southwest, Delta, United, Air Canada and Frontier and the recently added non-stop Southwest flight to the San Francisco Bay area.
Taxis and Uber are available at the airport 24 hours a day. The approximate fare into downtown Columbus is $25.
In May 2016, AirConnect, a new circulator route to/from the Columbus International Airport and downtown Columbus, began. The cost is $2.75 each way. Stops are made at the arrival and departure levels every 30 minutes, 7 days a week. In downtown, stops are made at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and many of the downtown hotels. Tickets can be purchased at a kiosk with credit cards (only) and tickets can be purchased on-board with cash (only). For additional information, visit COTA.com.
Rental cars are available on-site in an attached garage. Shuttle and limo service may be pre-arranged.
