Cheap Flights to Indiana

Indiana overview

Every year travellers from all over the world book flights to Indiana for two reasons: Hoosier Hysteria and the Indianapolis 500. Hoosier Hysteria takes place during basketball season and twice as much when the Hoosiers hit the playoffs. The Indy 500, held every Memorial Day weekend, is a haven for car and racing enthusiasts. Indiana flights and hotels are booked up to a year in advance for this weekend.

But before there were Hoosiers or Indycars, there were Indians. The Shawnee Native American tribe inhabited Indiana before it was handed over to the Kingdom of Great Britain at the end of the French and Indian War in the 17th century. Indiana found its way back to the governance of the United States after the American Revolution and in 1816, Indiana was officially declared the 19th state in the union.

Today, more than six million people call Indiana home, including late night talk show host David Letterman and the legendary multi-Grammy-award winning Jackson family. Indiana’s love of sports draws thousands of visitors every year and with four different airports serving the Hoosier State, it’s no wonder people find it easy to fly to Indiana for a game. If sports and racing don't appeal to you don't despair, there's always something to do in Indiana.
