Kansas City, MO Airport Information

Kansas City International Airport (MCI)

Fit for the modern traveler, the new single terminal at Kansas City International Airport will debut in early 2023 and feature 39 gates, updated amenities, and new dining options, all with the convenience that current travelers know and love.

Located three hours from either coast by plane and less than 25 minutes from the Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas City International Airport touts some of the most affordable fares in the country. Don't expect this to change, either, because it isn't a major airline hub, meaning prices will remain competitive to and from KC.

The Kansas City International Airport continues to grow even during this transitional period, offering hundreds of daily flights to dozens of nonstop destinations, both domestic and international.
