Lexington Bluegrass Airport (LEX) is the most convenient travel location, but Cincinnati (CVG) and Louisville (SDF) are only 80 miles drive away. Southwest Airlines serves Louisville, which may be a cheaper flight option for some. You will likely need to rent a car from these locations to Lexington.

Local Transportation:

Lextran runs buses to and from the airport. Routes and maps are available here:
