Travel and Transportation

Evansville Regional Airport (EVV)
7801 Bussing Dr, Evansville, IN 47725, USA

Obviously, if you are flying in from Europe Evansville won't be your first port-of-entry. EVV literally has an A and B terminal only. However, it's a short flight here from Chicago, Newark, Charlotte, Atlanta and probably a few other major International Airports.

Allegiant Air (only 2 weekly flights to and from Orlando/Sanford), American (American Eagle), Delta (Delta Connection) and United (United Express) Airlines have regular flights to and from EVV.

The airport itself is located 3 miles north of Evansville.
