What Airport should I use when flying to the Outer Banks, NC?
If you are flying on a commercial airplane (vs. private airplane), the closest Airport to fly in is Norfolk International Airport (ORF) in Norfolk, VA or Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport (PHF). Estimated travel time from Norfolk International Airport to Kitty Hawk, NC is 1 hr 45 mins (around 80 miles), according to Mapquest; from Newport News-Williamsburg Airport to Kitty Hawk, NC travel time is 2 hrs 12 mins (106 miles). The best way to get from the Airports to the Outer Banks is by renting a car (car rentals are offered at the airports), taxi (pricey option), or, for big groups, I can suggest The Connection Transportation Services that offer to pick you up and drop you off on a shuttle bus. If you can find a great deal on airfare tickets, it may be worth flying into Raleigh, NC (3.5 t 4 hr drive) or Richmond, VA (3-3.5 hr drive) and renting a car at the Airport.
If you are looking to hire a private jet for the trip, Stratos Jet Charter Services offers Private Jet Charter Flights and Aircraft Rental.
