Sioux City SUX airport is easy and convenient. It is a smaller airport so you want to book early for best pricing and availability. It is über convenient because it is 5 minutes from downtown and the hotel has a free shuttle. There are limited flights in and out each day on one airline so be aware of this and again, book early for best selection.
NEW: 2017 We now offer flights to Dallas from SUX airport so check out those flights.
PRICING TIP: Do not book directly with the airline. Book on like www.priceline.com or Joi’s favorite www.kayak.com for affordable rates.
- Arrivals are usually mid morning around 10, mid afternoon around 4 and late evening around 9-10pm
- Departures are usually 6am, 10am, and later in the day (this has varied on exact times)
SEATING TIP: My favorite seat is 17A at the back of the plane. If you want any chance of having a row to yourself on an early bird flight this is it. Other good seats are right at the front. There is usually a small fee to snag these. HOWEVER, due to limited flights SUX flights are almost always FULL!
Our airline is American and the hub is Chicago. We are a fast 45 minute flight to & from Chicago. When leaving Sioux City to return home most of you will take the early bird which leaves around 6am which I hate, but you have short layovers in Chicago and can pretty much be anywhere by noon. You do NOT need to arrive at the airport 2 hours early in SUX because you will be the only one there. 45 minutes to an hour is fine.
Lastly, we are about 90 minutes up the interstate I-29 from the Omaha Epply Airfield which is a much bigger airport with many airlines and many flight and time options. You can rent a car, and drive up to Sioux City. If you want to share a rental car email the studio and we will try to pass along names of other attendees taking this option, however, we cannot make arrangements for you.
