Visitors Coming by Plane

Tweed-New Haven Airport, from which taxi, bus, and car rental service is available, is four miles from campus. There is frequent limousine service to New Haven from other airports, and sometimes this is the more reliable way to get here, rather than flying directly into Tweed. Tweed has frequent delayed and/or cancelled flights given that it is such a small airport, and of course has fewer flights than the major airports in surrounding areas. Connecticut Limousine (located at the Long Wharf Terminal, I-95 Exit 46 in New Haven) services JFK International Airport (New York—eighty miles to campus), LaGuardia International Airport (New York—seventy-two miles to campus), Newark International Airport (Newark, New Jersey—ninety-two miles to campus) and Bradley International Airport (Windsor Locks, Connecticut—fifty-three miles to campus and near Hartford).
