  • 2 John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH IATA), 4600 International Gateway, +1 614 239-4083. Direct flights to most major American cities. Aside from rental cars, the airport can also be reached by the #92 bus, or by taxi. A taxi ride to downtown is only 10 minutes and will cost approximately $25. Depending on your schedule and where you are connecting to, it may be worthwhile to check flights to Dayton as well, as they are often cheaper.

  • 3 Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK IATA). A smaller international airport farther from the city core. A small number of passenger airlines and charter flights use this airport. This airport services a small number of General aviation flights. A former US Army, and later Air force base, it was named after WWI fighter ace and Columbus native Eddie Rickenbacker and still hosts a small military presence.

  • Lunch Wagons (Called loncheras or lovingly referred to as "roach coaches"). Cater to a Latino labor force, are becoming a common sight around town and are very popular with those in the know.
