Which airport should I use? Kansas City, MO (airport code MCI) if you want to take the shuttle. If you’re planning to rent a car, you can also try Wichita (just over 2 hours) or Oklahoma City (about 4 hrs).
Note: Several regional lines service MCI, so if you’re not finding good rates, check Spirit (crazy cheap sometimes, but be sure to buy your checked bag with your ticket or it will cost 4x as much), Frontier, Southwest, Midwest, etc. They’re not always listed on expedia, etc.
Fly into MCI (Kansas City Airport), using these guidelines to book your flight:
- YARN SCHOOL ONLY: Arrive by 4pm Thurs; depart after 3pm Sun
- YARN SCHOOL + DYE LAB: Arrive by 4pm Thurs; depart after 11am Mon
- RIGID HEDDLE SCHOOL ONLY: MCI: Arrive 9:45am Monday; depart after noon Wed
- YARN SCHOOL + RIGID HEDDLE SCHOOL (w/ Free Dye Lab): Arrive by 4pm Thurs; depart after noon Wed
We’ll be arriving to the airport about an hour before the stated departure time, so your check-in time is already built in.
