Why Fly HIA

Closer to Home.

Travelers choose HIA (FAA Code: MDT) because they’ve done the math and realized how much Money, Distance and Time they can save by flying closer to home. Once you add the commute time, the gas and tolls, the headache and the sheer endurance it takes to commute to an airport located hours away and make your flight, you can see the value HIA provides.

But flying HIA does more than provide a better value. HIA provides a better travel experience. Quick, easy parking. Relaxing, clean facilities where you can wait in a rocking chair for your plane. A quick drive home at the end of your trip instead of hours of commuting.

Use our convenient Travel Cost Calculator to compare the true costs of flights through HIA and other airports outside our region.
