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.

For private planes, First Flight Airport in Kill Devil Hills and Dare County Airport in Manteo, NC are the best options.

If you are looking to hire a private jet for the trip, Stratos Jet Charter Services offers Private Jet Charter Flights and Aircraft Rental.
