Iowa may be a landlocked state, but the collection of Iowa airports found throughout
the state gives passengers access to the whole world. Both short flights from
Midwestern hub cities to the smaller airports here, or longer flights to the
Des Moines airport from big
cities near and far come into airports in Iowa. Those embarking on Iowa
vacations can fly into the city of their choice and begin exploring.
The largest of the Iowa airports is located in Des Moines, Iowa's capital
city. Nearly two million passengers utilize the Des Moines airport every year,
arriving from cities like Phoenix,
York, and the biggest city in the Midwest, Chicago.
When passengers fly in and out of the Des Moines airport, they'll find an assortment
of shops, restaurants, and services that make time at the airport and vacation
planning a breeze. There are several car rental agencies right in the terminal,
a short walk from the Des Moines airport parking lot.
As with most well-traveled airports, this transportation hub devotes ample space for Des Moines airport parking. Whether passengers are preparing for a long trip or planning to pick up someone, there's plenty of parking available in the short-term, long-term, and economy lots. Long-term parking is available in an enclosed parking ramp, and the economy lot is outdoors. A shuttle bus that runs 24 hours a day brings passengers and their luggage from the economy Des Moines airport parking spots to the main terminal. Once passengers leave the airport lots, they'll have easy access to Des Moines hotels and lots of attractions, including several museums and Adventureland USA theme park.
