Plan Your Trip to Phoenix
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, dubbed America's Friendliest Airport, is the main airport for the Greater Phoenix area. Sky Harbor serves more than 100 domestic and international destinations. With 1,200 daily flights — about 500 of them nonstop — Sky Harbor is one of the most convenient airports in the United States.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is served by 17 competitively priced carriers. The airport is located in the middle of Greater Phoenix, less than ten minutes from downtown, and within 20 miles of almost all of our towns and cities.
