Air Travel

Although Gainesville has a lovely little hassle free airport, the flights in and out are extremely limited and priced higher than other airports.

We recommend that you check other airports to see if they better suit your needs.

Jacksonville International is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes away.

Orlando International is approximately 1 hour and 59 minutes away.

Tampa International is approximately 2 hours and 13 minutes away.

Sanford Orlando is approximately 2 hours and 22 minutes away.

The price difference will usually cover a rental car.

Flight availability may also save one night motel.
