Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, dubbed America's Friendliest Airport, is the main airport for the Greater Phoenix area. Sky Harbor serves more than 100 domestic and international destinations. With 1,200 daily flights—about 500 of them nonstop—Sky Harbor is one of the most convenient airports in the United States. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is served by 17 competitively priced carriers. The airport is located in the middle of Greater Phoenix, less than ten minutes from downtown, and within 20 miles of almost all of our towns and cities. Convenient transportation to the airport comes by way of PHX Sky Train. This driverless people mover transports Valley Metro Light Rail passengers to the airport from the 44th Street/Washington Street station.

Getting Around

There are several ways to navigate the city, including public transportation and transportation services such as taxis, rental cars, charter services and more. The Valley Metro Light Rail runs from central Phoenix, through downtown, to Tempe and Mesa in the east. Stations are close by and run right by some of the area’s top attractions, such as the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Science Center, Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly US Airways Center), Arizona State University and more. A one-way pass on the light rail costs $2 or an all-day pass is $4, which can be purchased at the ticket vending machines at each station.
