Flights:

If you are traveling into New Haven from outside of the Northeastern U.S., The Tweed New Haven airport (HVN) may not be your most convenient option (flights tend to be infrequent, expensive, and not direct from many airports). You might have better luck with the Bradley Airport in Hartford (less than one hour’s drive to New Haven), but for those of us on the west coast, BDL still has limited options and they tend to be expensive.

You can save time and money by catching a direct flight to Newark (EWR) or NYC (JFK or LGA).

  • From EWR, your best bet is the train to New Haven. It is a 2 hour+ train ride, but the Amtrak station is right there at the airport, so you can roll your bag straight from the plane to the train.
  • If you prefer to rent a car or take a shuttle, JFK and LGA are great options for low-cost, direct flights and, you can make the trip to New Haven in 1 ½ to 2 hours.
