How long are flights to State College, Pennsylvania?

University Park Airport serves State College, Bellefonte, and the surrounding areas. Nearly 300,000 passengers flew in or out of University Park Airport in 2018, making it one of the busiest public airports in Pennsylvania.

The airport is served by three regional airline carriers—American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express—each with relatively close regional hub airports for easy connecting flights to State College.

Flight lengths vary depending upon the departure city as well as that city’s respective hub airport.

Boston flights out of Logan International Airport take around 3h 30m, including a connecting flight from Dulles. New York flights have similar flight times, including flights from LaGuardia and Newark International Airports. Atlanta flights take slightly longer, averaging around 4h 45m with a connecting flight in Detroit.

Flights out of Dallas-Fort Worth can take anywhere from just under five hours to 6h 41m; as Dallas-Fort Worth offers flights from all three regional airline carries, passengers can expect connecting flights out of Chicago, Philadelphia or Detroit, respectively.

Denver flights can take as little as five hours, but most average around seven hours. Phoenix flights can take anywhere from just over six hours to just under eight hours.

Most Los Angeles flights to University Park Airport take around 7h 35m but can easily exceed eight hours. San Francisco flight lengths are similar. Seattle flights average around eight hours but may exceed 11 hours if two connecting flights are required.

Nonstop from hub airport cities are all relatively short, averaging around an hour to just under two hours. Allegiant Air flights from Orlando and Clearwater both average just over two hours.

How do you get from University Park Airport to Penn State and the State College city center?

The city center of State College is called the Downtown State College Improvement District. University Park Airport is slightly closer to the Penn State campus, but only by a few minutes.

It takes just 15 minutes to reach the campus from the airport by car; downtown takes around 25 minutes, depending upon traffic and road closures.

The best way to get around is by car; as it is a big college town, rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft are a very popular way to get around because they’re accessible via smartphones and relatively inexpensive.

Taxis and shuttles are available at University Park Airport; the airport features a phone board listing direct lines to taxi services and hotel shuttles near the baggage terminal for easy reference.

What are some things to do in State College?

The Penn State campus is packed with museums, a beautiful arboretum featuring hundreds of green and flowering plants, reflecting pools, the Palmer Museum of Art, Beaver Stadium, home to Penn State’s Nittany Lions football team, and the Bryce Jordan Center, a 15,000+ seat amphitheater featuring live concerts and special events.

While Penn State dominates the local culture—especially during football season—there are lots of fun, exciting and unique things to do throughout Centre County all year long. Just outside of downtown State College lies one of the area’s second-best-known attractions, Mount Nittany. While the climb to the summit is steep, hikers can experience some of the best views in the state, including the Penn State campus and the verdant countryside that surrounds it. Penn’s Cave, a winding, water-filled cavern, features some of the most incredible, natural rock formations. Daily boat tours make exploration effortless. Sproul State Forest features two rushing waterfalls and hundreds of incredible hiking trails. Black Moshannon State Park features the largest reconstituted bog in the state.

The Columbus Chapel and Boal Mansion, located in nearby Boalsburg, features some of the most unusual and priceless artifacts in the entire state, including a sea chest once owned by Christopher Columbus, a lock of Napoleon Bonaparte’s hair and relics from the Crusades.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to University Park Regional Airport?

Passports are not necessary for any flights within the United States. U.S. citizens only need a photo ID, typically a state-issued driver’s license, to board commercial flights.
