Arriving to the airport is just the first step. If you have not made airport pick-up arrangements with your employer, you will need to plan for transportation from the airport to your employer or housing address. The closest airport is Branson Regional Airport (BKG). Springfield National Airport (SGF) is another recommended airport, but a 45 minute shuttle or taxi to Branson will be necessary.
Please note: If you choose to travel to an airport other than BKG or SGF, plan to spend significant time traveling by bus to Branson. Often, a Greyhound bus terminal will not be located at an airport. Therefore, it will be necessary to first travel from an airport to the nearest Greyhound bus station. Also, it is common that there will be a very limited bus schedule between the airport you choose and Branson. For example, the bus may only operate one time per day, or less. For these reasons, we recommend BKG and SGF as your best airport arrival options.
