Fly into St. Louis or Kansas City
Most people fly into either the Kansas City airport or the St. Louis airport. Each of these airports is located approximately 120 miles, or a two-hour drive, from Columbia. Most ground transportation services at both airports leave from just outside the baggage claim areas; look for signs to the appropriate transportation.
