Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) is located six miles (8km) from downtown Oklahoma City. The airport is named for a popular comedian and cowboy from Oklahoma. In fact, travelers going to Oklahoma should be sure to pack their Stetson, or just have fun seeing how many cowboys you can spot while at the airport.
The airport has a limited selection of shops and restaurants and only one terminal with concourses branching off it. It serves nearly 3.5 million people each year. While this makes it Oklahoma’s busiest airport, it is not a high-traffic airport by North American standards.
Flights to Will Rogers World Airport can be booked on many popular US airlines. There are a number of cities across the US with flight connections to Oklahoma City; some of the busiest non-stop flights to Will Rogers World Airport come from Dallas, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Newark, Detroit and Salt Lake City.
Will Rogers World Airport offers a more personal feel to flying. Yes, there are still security checks and sometimes the queues can get long, but most of the time passengers will have an easy airport experience. Perhaps, naming airports after comedians makes them less stressful places or maybe it’s just the laid-back feel of Oklahoma.
