One of the best things about visiting Wichita is its central location. Upon arrival, visitors enjoy how easy it is to get from place to place, whether walking around downtown or driving in the city. With an easy five-to-10-minute drive from the airport to downtown, it’s a luxury to arrive and easily get to where you want to go! Wichita is also easily accessible by car with junctions for I-35 and I-135, and U.S. Highway 81 and U.S. Highway 54/400.
Wichita's state-of-the-art airport Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (ICT) is serviced by all major air carriers.
Wichita's Q-Line offers free bus transportation to explore many of Wichita’s popular districts and businesses, including more than 200 downtown shops, restaurants, and hotels.
