Flying to the Palm Beaches

The best things to do in Florida are in The Palm Beaches, and flying in for vacation or a convention is a breeze. Stay from Jupiter to West Palm Beach to Boca Raton, and arrive comfortably via PBI, FLL or MIA airport.

Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)

PBI makes for a laidback travel experience. It’s centrally located and congestion-free, boasting a superb airline selection, local works of art and unexpected extra touches. Don’t just take our word for it:

  • Voted 9th best airport in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure Magazine
  • #1 in The Best Overall Airport Wait Times in the U.S.
  • Received the #5 Medium Airport ranking in the J.D. Power 2017 North America Airport Satisfaction Study

    At the Center of Things

  • Staying in Jupiter? Palm Beach Gardens? It’s around 15 minutes to PBI. Staying in Delray Beach? Boca Raton? Then figure around 20 minutes to the airport. Interstate 95 has exits going from highway to terminal curbside. Downtown West Palm Beach and the Palm Beach County Convention Center are only a few minutes away from PBI.

    The other way in to PBI is riding the rails. Tri-Rail has a free shuttle to PBI from its downtown West Palm Beach station, or grab a quick ride to the airport from the local Brightline station. 

    Hotels Near the Airport 

  • Another easy thing is finding a place to stay. Neighboring PBI are brands like Holiday Inn, Hilton and DoubleTree. Not to fear—Palm Beach resorts, hotels by the beach, and connecting to the Convention Center are within a short drive.

    Additional Airport Features

  • Check out the boutique stores, including the signature PGA TOUR shop.  
    For moms, PBI has two lactations suites.  
    TSA PreCheck is available.
    Remove pre-boarding pressures with the Comfort Zone Spa, featuring a hair salon, massages, manicures, pedicures and waxing.  
    Practice putting  on the indoor green before hitting the links.
    And, of course, use the complimentary WiFi.

  • Major Airports Not Far Away

  • The Palm Beaches are served not only by PBI, but two other major South Florida airports: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Miami International Airport (MIA). The Palm Beaches' southernmost cities, such as Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Boca Raton, are only about 30 minutes from FLL and within an hour of MIA.
