Easy to get to and even easier to get around, Minneapolis is one of America's most accessible cities.
Located between both coasts, Minneapolis is a destination that's central for everyone and a hub city. The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is the 16th busiest airport in the U.S. and a Delta Air Lines Hub. The city's highly lauded METRO (light rail transit) system ensures the city is not only easy to fly in to, but easy to navigate to.
Less than a three-hour flight from most U.S. cities and just minutes from downtown with access to the METRO Blue Line light rail transit, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is served by 13 commercial passenger airlines at two terminals. A hub of Delta Air Lines, MSP connects Minneapolis to nearly 800 cities in 120 countries. In addition, major freeways in all directions plus ample bus and train service, make getting around a snap!
