Major airports convenient to I-70

We're gathering at the just-opened, $31-million Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism. Columbia, Mo., is on Interstate 70 approximate 1.75 hours from Lambert St. Louis International Airport (STL) and about 2.25 hours from Kansas City International Airport (MCI). Both are on I-70. Driving by rental car is convenient and simple. Major airlines, including Southwest, serve both STL and MCI.

New Northwest Airlink service to Columbia Regional Airport (COU)

In September, Northwest Airlink commenced three flights per day between the Columbia Regional Airport, about 15 minutes from campus, and Memphis, a hub for Northwest Airlines. With fares subsidized, if you can board a non-stop flight to Memphis, connecting to Columbia directly may be the most convenient travel option. FLIGHT/AIRPORT DETAILS
