Rapid City Regional Airport is the commercial airline hub for the Black Hills. Air travel is available on Northwest Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Allegiant Air, Skywest Delta Connection or United Express. Private pilots land at state-approved airports at Hot Springs, Custer, Rapid City, Wall, Sturgis, Spearfish, Sundance and Belle Fourche.




Getting Around

Rental cars and limo service are available at Rapid City Regional Airport, but you won't necessarily need a car to have a great vacation here. There are several excellent summertime sightseeing services that routinely pick up at hotels and campgrounds for day-trip excursions into the beautiful Black Hills or Badlands.
