Why Would I fly to Fort Myers?
If you’re fed up with cold damp weather then Fort Myers is the place for you, nearly a year round destination it has a near perfect climate with only the occasional hurricane to spoil things. The city is crawling with history too. From the Seminole Wars fought against the local Native Americans to the homes of Edison and Ford, it’s bursting at the seams with exhibits of their inventions, you’ll find something for everyone. In winter, the sunny mild climate makes it perfect for outdoor sports such as cycling, fishing and golf.

How do I get to Fort Myers?

Alternatively, fly into Washington or New York and connect there. It’s a straightforward journey into the city by the number 50 bus or you can take a taxi or hire a car.

What’s the Airport Like?
It’s big and busy and is ranked as one of the busiest single runway airports in the US handling over 7.5m passengers last year. It’s only reasonably modern looking despite being built only six years ago to award winning acclaim but stretches out over a large area with a central terminal area and three concourses. Facilities are good and the airport ranks high on customer satisfaction with the airport experience.
