Vacationers coming to admire quaint New England towns, experience the vibrant
cultural scenes, or a bit of both, can begin their trip at one of the airports
in New Hampshire. Three major airports in New Hampshire handle most of the travelers
who arrive by air, Manchester Boston Regional Airport, Lebanon Municipal Airport,
and Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Whichever one of these New Hampshire
airports travelers choose, they will find that frequent flights, plentiful parking,
and easy access to all the things
to do in New Hampshire.
The Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is strategically located in the center
of New England, just 50 miles from Boston. This capital city airport is also
located within an hour's drive of all of the major landscapes of the Granite
State, including mountaintop ski
resorts, charming seaside towns, and quaint communities on the shores of
lakes big and small. With
plentiful parking, relatively short waiting times, competitive airfares, and
a full schedule of flights, the Manchester Boston Regional Airport is a top
choice of New Hampshire vacationers. Over the past several years, a series of
renovations have improved the airport facilities and infrastructure. Within
the terminals, passengers have access to services including dining,
car rentals, newsstands,
and travel information. Several airport
hotels are located within a few minutes of the Manchester Boston Regional
Airport, especially along Interstate 93.
In addition to the Manchester Boston Regional Airport, the two smaller New
Hampshire airports also are serviced by major airlines. The Lebanon Municipal
Airport is situated along the Connecticut River, between the White Mountains
and Vermont's Green Mountains. Not far from Dartmouth College and Hanover,
the airport features daily service from New York's LaGuardia Airport. Its small
size means easy walks from the parking lot to the ticket counter as well as
shorter security lines. But being small does mean its short on amenities; parking
is free, as is Wi-Fi Internet access.
The list of airports in New Hampshire with a strategic location also includes
the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Just off the major thoroughfare
of Interstate 95 the airport is within 50 miles of Manchester, as well as Boston
and Portland, Maine. With
a new terminal for both domestic and international service, this airport is
becoming an increasingly popular choice for New Hampshire air travel. As with
the Lebanon airport, parking is free and traffic is rarely a concern.
In addition to New Hampshire airports, travelers also can make plans to fly into other regional airports. Boston Logan International Airport, New England's busiest airport is located an hour south of Manchester and 45 minutes from Nashua. Nearly 30 airlines make trips to and from Logan, including low-cost carriers, international airline, and full-service legacy carriers.
Over the border in Maine, the Portland International Jetport welcomes many passengers who are vacationing in New Hampshire, especially those heading to the grand resorts of the White Mountains for some skiing. Just 60 miles from Wolfeboro and 65 from Lake Winnipesaukee, Maine's largest airport is another option for travelers. Most major airlines and several low-cost airlines offer service to Portland, making it easy for travelers around North America to fly to the region from wherever they call home. A newly added garage has vastly increased the parking facilities.
