The John Glenn International Airport, located 6-miles east of downtown Columbus, is the largest passenger airport in central Ohio. Over 8-million passengers traveled through the airport in 2018. John Glen International is the second busiest airport in Ohio after Cleveland Hopkins International. Several new flights launched in early 2019, which included nonstop flights to Seattle.
