Hey Kentucky Gang. Which airlines fly into Owensboro???

I'm out of town in Jacksonville, FL and am not sure if I'll even be able to make it to the Bash. Might be stuck offshore on seatrials for a new boat for work.

But if I can I'll probably fly in on Friday AM if I can. What airlines fly into Owensboro or any nearby airport. I'm having no such luck so far.


Thanks in advance.

John

I believe that when most people fly there they fly into the airport at Evansville IN and then drive to Owensboro which isn't a very long drive through some nice country.

Thanks guys.

But it looks like I will not be attending. I'm leaving for seatrials on a new boat out of Jacksonville, FL tomorrow and plan to be gone for 4-5 days. My brother may not be able to go either so if he doesn't go my dad will more than likely stay home since he's not up for the long drive by himself.

If I come up at all I'll just fly into either Evansville or Nashville from Jacksonville, FL.

This just plain sucks since I was really looking forward to boiling some more crawfish for everyone again. I had it all arranged with Phillip so I know he'll be disappointed too.

Thanks again for the info.

Nashville is quite a ways away ... Louisville would be closer that that or even Bowling Green.
Evansville is really the way to go.

I hear ya Randy but I can get a direct to Nashville from Jacksonville on Southwest. Everything going from Jax to Evansville, etc... was 2-3 legs long and took me all over the eastern US to get there.

As it looks right now I'm not going but we'll see what pans out......

John I called this morning, the Owensboro Daviess County Regional Airport's office is closed. The local Yellow Pages list these airlines for the Owensboro area. I assume they provide service in this area.

American Airlines & Eagle 800-433-7300
Northwest Airlines / KLM 800-225-2525
Southwest Airlines 800-435-9792
U S Airways Express 800-428-4322

Owensboro/DC Regional 270-685-4179 (8AM-5PM M-F)

As others have mentioned, Evansville, IN airport is about an hour drive from Owensboro, and Nashville, TN airport is about 2 1/2 hours drive.

Hope this helps,
Dave.

Thanks Dave. I've looked for flights into there before when I was going to fly up for the boat races and the winter seminar. I know they exist just need to look on the airline sites instead of the travel sites.

As it is now don't expect me to show. I just called Phillip and informed him as well. That means no crawfish unless my brother gets off of work and can travel up with my dad to do it.

I'll get out of her enow. Gotta go seatrial a new 240' offshore supply vessel here for work. I'd post a picture but the web filter here at the shipyard will not allow me to access Photobucket.
