Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport (LEX) has a quaint name, that goes along with the proud history of the area. Southern hospitality is the order of the day in the friendly and efficient service of the airport, located just 6.5km (4 miles) outside of the city.
A small regional airport, you won’t find flights to Blue Grass Airport from international destinations; instead, you can choose from commuter flights operating to and from Chicago, Atlanta and Houston.
Once inside, however, the spacious and attractive interior quickly makes you forget its lack of bells and whistles. Processing just over a million passengers a year, the airport is a warm and welcoming gateway to the charms of Kentucky – whether you come for the Derby, or just for a taste of bourbon.
