How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Michigan

A state as big as Michigan has lots of airports sprinkled throughout the state which you can choose from – but the gap between the busiest airport and the airport in second place is so massive that unless you are flying from elsewhere in the area it is almost a guarantee that you will be flying through Michigan’s largest airport first.

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (airport code DTW) is the largest and busiest airport in Michigan by far, with more than 17 million passengers coming through the airport in 2006 alone. Detroit’s airport, usually called simply Detroit Metro or even just DTW is the home airport for Northwest Airlines and its regional partners, as well as a hub airport for Spirit Airlines.

Gerald R. Ford International Airport (airport code GRR) in Grand Rapids is the state’s second busiest airport, with just under 2 million passengers served in 2007. No airlines use Ford International as a hub, but Northwest Airlines serves the most cities from Grand Rapids. A full list of airlines which connect with Ford International is here.

The third-busiest airport in Michigan is Bishop International Airport (airport code FNT) in Flint, with just over 1 million passengers coming through the airport in 2007. Bishop International is actually within Flint’s city limits, and there are a total of five commerical airlines which serve Flint. Additionally, Bishop is used by three cargo companies and is the home of a small flight school. You can see a list of the airlines serving Flint’s airport here, or you can just look at the airport website’s home page where there is a list of not only the airlines connecting with the airport but also the non-stop destinations served.
