Minneapolis St Paul Airport

Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport (MSP)


The Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport (MSP) serves the famed Twin Cities of Minnasota, Minneapolis and St. Paul. Built in 1921, this major aviation facility has grown from a lowly airfield, into one of the key domestic and international hubs for the region. Roughly seeing 35 million passengers a year, who travel to one of the 136 destinations that this airport offers direct routes to, this airport has had to modernise and keep up to date with updates to the travelling experience.


The amenities you’ll find here attest to that; with free and comprehensive WiFi throughout the airport, as well as payphones and post services available to those that do not have a mobile device. There are banking facilities here too, with cash machines and currency exchange, plus information desks for passengers new to either city, or to the airport itself.


Beyond your practical needs, you will find a decent range of entertainment and dining options. There are a plethora of restaurants, bars, cafes, and snack stations available here, and these include popular chains like Arby’s, Ben & Jerry’s, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and Burger King. For shoppers, you can find a dedicated duty-free section selling cosmetics, alcohol, tobacco, and fragrances, as well as a number of high-street fashion shops, travel accessory outlets, souvenir shops, and newsagencies stocked with reading materials and confectionary.


You’ll be able to fly from Australia out to Minneapolis on flights operated by American Airlines, Delta, Air Canada, Fiji Airways, Qantas, Air New Zealand, China Airlines, United and Air Canada.


Travel Information


·         Driving to Minneapolis, you will need to hop on the MN-5 East, then take the MN-62 West, to the I-35W North, and follow the signs to Downtown. To St. Paul, get on the MN-5 E, and then take the I-35E N to the city. Both towns are roughly 15-20km from the airport, and should only take you 20 minutes of travel time. There are a whole host of major car hire brands operating out of this airport, and you can secure a vehicle on arrival, or search for deals with our online price comparison tool before departing for this destination.


·         There are city buses and light rail services that both run routes directly from the airport into both cities, with fares coming to less than 3USD ($4) for a one-way ticket. These are efficient modes of transportation, and come frequently, but if you’d rather not take mass transit, then you can arrange an airport transfer pretty easily on our search engine, and be picked up and taken right to your door.
