It depends on where you live or where you are going. Lunken airport is centrally located on the east side of Cincinnati just minutes from downtown. Butler County Airport is about 30 minutes north of downtown and convenient to I-275 (the city's loop highway). Far east of town about 45-60 minutes from downtown is Clermont County Airport, which can be difficult to get into town during high traffic times, but is convenient to eastern suburbs. You can also fly to our international airport in Northern Kentucky, The Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport which is about 25 minutes from downtown and convenient to Kentucky Suburbs. If you are concerned about fees, storage, parking and fuel, Northern Kentucky is by far the highest, with Lunken being a little less. The least expensive are Butler and Clermont County airports which are considerably less expensive, but are not as centrally located.
Lunken Airport on the east side of Cincinnati is where you will find private and corporate planes flying in and out of Cincinnati. Lunken used to be the main airport, until the airport in Northern Kentucky was built. in 1947. The City of Cincinnati owns and maintains Lunken, along with the Blue Ash Airport. The Blue Ash Airport, another place where private planes would fly in an out is being closed at the end of August 2012. Many of the aviation services and aircraft have moved to some of the small regional airports, as most of the surrounding counties operate small airports.
