There are 3 airlines that connect directly to State College (SCE). The airline, connecting city and plane types are noted below. It is a small airport, but it does have a restaurant for food and drinks. The security line moves quickly except for 6:00 a.m. flights, when all three airlines have planes that leave at almost the same times (around 6 to 7 am). This delay, however, is generally minimal.

United: Washington Dulles (IAD); Chicago (ORD)
American: Philadelphia (PHL); Chicago (ORD)
Delta: Detroit (DTW)

While you may fly into airports in other cities near Penn State, the drive is quite long: Philadelphia (4 hr); Pittsburgh (3 hr); Harrisburg (2 hr).


There are several hotels within walking distance to the Sackett Building. The Nittany Lion Inn is on campus, convenient, has its own parking deck as well as restaurants and bar. The Penn Stater hotel is located off campus. Three hotels within walking distance are: the Atherton, Days Inn, and the Hyatt Place.


Hotel limo pickup: Most hotels offer pick-up service; this should be arranged with the hotel directly.
Taxi: There are usually several taxi drivers located in the single, main airport reception area from the plane who are available to provide transportation to your destination and will help with handling luggage.  Because of the airport’s small size, this is an easy process, and will generally cost less than $20.
Car rental: There are several rental companies with cars conveniently located just outside of the airport.
