Lansing Capital City Airport (LAN), also known as Capital Region International Airport, is located 3 miles (5km) northwest of Lansing in the DeWitt Township of Michigan. It’s a tiny facility, with only 257,350 passengers catching flights to Lansing Capital City Airport in 2010.
2006 saw the release of renovation plans for the airport, including the building of a new control tower, terminal building, baggage claims area, car rental and parking facilities – however, construction has yet to start.
This is a small airport with limited facilities, so if you’re here for a while, you’ll probably want to bring something to do. It’s also rated by many passengers as one of the most expensive airports to fly out of in the US. However, in Lansing versus Detroit: 6 Things You Should Know, the airport claims that the additional cost of flying from Detroit rather than from Lansing adds about $250 to the cost of a cheap flight from Detroit.
