Kansas City International Airport

Kansas City International Airport, often abbreviated KCI, located 15 miles northwest of downtown Kansas City, is one of the most convenient airports to travel in and out of across the country. Served by many of the major United States airlines such as; Southwest, Delta, American, and many others, flying to your destination as you plan your trip with Majorca airport transfers with 89transfers.com will likely be a non-stop process from Kansas City. Every year, approximately 10 million passengers travel through the airport three terminals, which is what sets this airport apart.

The airport is laid out into three individual terminals, each containing various airlines. Each individual terminal has a short term, with a walk of fewer than 100 feet to be at the check-in desk. One drawback to the three-terminal design is that transferring between airlines is quite difficult, with a short bus ride, and then passing through security again. Each of the three terminals is identical, inside and out, and thanks to recent upgrades, the terminals have a modern look, bright and very inviting.

After arriving at each individual airline check-in, passengers proceed less than another 50 feet to security, which is unique at KCI. Every 5 or so gates have an individual security checkpoint, allowing for very, very short wait times to clear security. Another advantage of the security at Kansas City is that it is one of the few airports which has private security, increasing effectiveness, and decreasing wait times. However, prior to clearing security, passengers may wish to purchase food, because once through security, there is only a small snack stand, with chips, small sandwiches, soft drinks, and coffee. Outside of security may shops and restaurants offer plenty of opportunities to purchase food or reading material for that upcoming flight. Prior to the recent updates, there were no bathrooms located within security, however, restrooms have been added through security in each of the small 5 gate departure areas.

Public long term parking is easy to find, convenient to use, and relatively inexpensive for an airport of this size. Located just off-premises is a private parking facility, which offers to the terminal bus service, covered and open parking in a secure lot, for roughly the same fee per day. A new rental car facility was built, placing all rental car agencies in the same location, with a short bus ride to the facility.

Of note about Kansas City International is the American Airlines maintenance facility located just across from the terminal. American Airlines obtained the facility when the purchase of TWA was completed and is still used today to maintain its McDonnell-Douglas MD-80 and Boeing 767 fleets. Overall, the airport is extremely convenient for an airport of its size, and offer plenty of service to most major US cities non-stop.
