Victoria Airport

Once known as the Foster Air Force Base, the Victoria Regional Airport was established during World War II to service as a flight school for fresh cadets. Today the airport services the lovely city of Victoria, a historical town situated in the south of Texas.

You’ll find that this airport is small but is wheelchair accessible and transiting passengers will have access to free wireless internet. VCT airport is situated approximately 10km outside of Victoria, and is utilised mostly for general aviation purposes, and charter flights.  

However, there is one commercial airline called Texas Sky Airlines that offers in-state routes from Victoria to Austin (AUS), as well as Victoria to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW). If you want to get to Victoria from outside Texas or the greater United States, than you must fly from these larger international hubs, who welcome incoming and operate outgoing flights to destinations across the USA and the world.  

Victoria is a mid-sized city, but there’s lots to do here, you can visit the Victoria Ballet and Symphony Orchestra, explore the Nave Museum and Children’s Discovery Museum, or take part in a tour that will take you around the historical homes and cemeteries of the area. If you want to go further afield, or simply want an easy way to get around the city, then it is recommended that you hire a car for your stay.  

Please note all information is current as of March 2016.
