INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS

If you are flying internationally, we strongly suggest flying into John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York City. JFK is approximately 80 miles from New Haven, Connecticut (CT), and is served by nearly 100 airlines from airports all over the world. Bradley International Airport (BDL) also has competitive rates for international flights.

If you are flying into:

  • Bradley International Airport (BDL) in Hartford, Connecticut,
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York City,
  • LaGuardia International Airport (LGA) in New York City,
  • Newark-Liberty International Airport (EWR) in Newark, New Jersey

…then you will need to arrange ground transportation to and from New Haven.

New Haven-Tweed Airport (HVN) is small and supports very limited commercial flights. International airports in Hartford and the Greater New York City area better serve the needs of most participants traveling to the program. If you choose to travel to New Haven via New Haven-Tweed Airport, you will need to take ground transportation to the Yale campus, as the airport is east of the city. Students cannot walk from New Haven-Tweed Airport to campus, because the airport is located several miles away from the University.
