Airline Travel

Asheville Regional Airport is serviced by several carriers including Delta Connection, Carriers ASA and COMAIR, Northwest, US Airways, and US Express.

Because the drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains is so beautiful, many Ridgecrest guests enjoy flying into airports in Charlotte, NC (CLT 101 miles), Greenville/Spartanburg, SC (GSP 93 miles), or Knoxville, TN (TYW 144 miles), and then driving the short remaining distance by car. This oftentimes is a more economical option, as well, as these larger airports generally offer discounted rates through the larger carriers such as Northwest, Delta, United, American, and US Air.
