AIRLINE SERVICE:    With daily nonstop flights to:

Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul and beyond,  at affordable rates, it's no wonder that the Central Illinois Regional Airport has become one of the hottest travel gateways in the Midwest.    Allegiant  currently flies nonstop to Orlando/Sanford (SFB) and  to Tampa/St. Pete (PIE) Florida.

PARKING: We also offer FREE PARKING for all of our passengers!  As you drive toward the terminal building on the entrance road you will see signage directing you to both long term and short term parking.  Short term is two hours or less and is immediately in front of the terminal building.  Long term (anything over two hours) is immediately behind the two hour parking lot. 

You will find using our  terminal building a pleasant and enjoyable traveling experience.  A complimentary parking shuttle is available to take you from the parking lot to the terminal and back again upon your return.

American, Delta ,  and Allegiant all provide service to the Central Illinois Regional Airport, located two miles east of Veteran's Parkway on Route 9 in Bloomington.

We have five car rental agencies inside the terminal: Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and National are all located in the baggage claim area of the terminal building.

Tailwind Gift Shop is open in the terminal building with travel necessities, accessories, Bloomington-Normal gift items and more.
