Flying into Beautiful Lancaster

Bucolic Lancaster feels like a world away. With gentle rolling hills and endless farms, this place of old-fashioned appeal is conveniently served by several airports. Fly direct to Lancaster (LNS), or drive from Harrisburg International Airport (MDT), or Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). While convenient in distance, LNS offers very limited regional service. If you're not coming from the East Coast, MDT or PHL offer more flight options. The drive from either is enjoyable but the airports themselves are very different. If you've looked for a cheap flight and can't find one, we have some budget-friendly solutions below, so keep reading.

More About Flights to Lancaster

How Do I Book a Flight to Lancaster, PA?

MDT is a smaller airport than PHL. Non-stop service to MDT is available from 12 U.S. cities and Toronto. Flights are harder to find and generally cost at least $100 more than PHL.

What’s the Best Way to Get to and From the Airport?

Lancaster's distance from either airport means it's best to rent a car. The sites in Lancaster are spread out and, while there is bus service, renting a car will give you easier access to the historic covered bridges scattered throughout the county and Chocolate World, USA (Hershey). Driving from Harrisburg takes 45 minutes. Expect lower speeds as you get closer to Lancaster. Amish buggies are slow and difficult to pass on narrow country roads so they create a lot of congestion. Allow for plenty of time and enjoy the pastoral views. PHL takes 1.5 hours. You'll traverse congested urban and suburban routes before they melt into rural ribbons of back roads for the last half of the trip.

Are There Any Nearby Hotels?​

Lancaster offers many budget-friendly lodging options from B&Bs to charming inns and resort-style hotels. Most are economical with even the high-end places under $200 per night.

Are There Any Additional Travel Tips?​

Lancaster is a delightful rural getaway known for outlet shopping and Amish handicrafts. The best way to enjoy the verdant landscape is by car. For that reason, it doesn't matter if you fly into the state capital of Harrisburg or PHL. However, the budget conscious will opt for PHL for its less expensive flights and flight options.
