Directions to Tucson

This page introduces how to get to Tucson from both domestic and oversea. Also, you can see the flight information and driving directions.

Destinations

We recommend that you should use Tucson International airport (TUS) or Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). These airports are most convenient to access to Tucson.

Of course, Tucson International airport is the best, but it hard to say an ideal one because of not many flights, be crowded during the show, and a not good connection from other airports.

In addition, sometimes, you cannot get a rental car because of the high demand.

If Tucson International airport will not fit you, you should consider using Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The airport is one of the huge airports in the US, and they have many flights including international flights and a good connection between other airports. Also, they have a huge rental car section. To Tucson, one and a half hours drive.
