For air travelers, the Columbia Regional Airport is serviced by American Airlines (Columbia airport code: COU. Website here.). Multiple daily flights connect to Dallas/Ft. Worth and Chicago. COU is located about 13 miles south of downtown Columbia. Information about COU shuttles and taxis can be found here.

Alternately, significantly larger airports in St. Louis (STL) and Kansas City (MCI) are about two hours away from Columbia. Sometimes using those airports reduces airfare by a noticeable amount. Columbia transportation company MoX offers multiple daily shuttles to and from STL. Find more information here. At the time of this writing, rravel from MCI to Columbia is much more difficult without a reliable shuttle service. A rental car is the best option for those connecting to MCI.
