What airport should I fly into?
You have four options for airports, depending on which strategy you want to take. Airports are ordered in distance from Sioux Falls. Joe Foss Field is the Sioux Falls regional airport. You will be able to get free shuttle rides from the hotel and back when you arrive and depart. Eastern South Dakota GWIS members are also available if the shuttle is not. The Sioux Gateway Airport in Sioux City, Iowa is another regional airport option. This airport is 1.5 hours away from Sioux Falls so it will require a car rental. Eppley Field in Omaha, Nebraska is the closest international airport, which is 3 hours away from Sioux Falls. A rental car will be needed. The St. Paul International Airport is in St.Paul/Minneapolis and is 5 hours away. A rental care will be needed.
