St Augustine Florida Getting Here is a Breeze

By | September 4, 2013

Sunny, St. Augustine, Florida; getting here really is a breeze. You can fly into our St. Augustine Airport (private planes only) or the Jacksonville International Airport even if you need to take China Flights to reach us, or alternatively just pick up a St. Augustine map and hop in the car. You’ll find us in the northeast corner of the state.

We’re about 40 miles south of Jacksonville, Florida and 60 miles north of Daytona Beach just 5 miles east of Interstate 95.

Orlando is a two hour drive southwest.

We are very easy to find and our small size makes getting around relatively simple.

No getting lost in the “big city” around here, and please don’t forget to ensure that you get your travel insurance before you leave home, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!


Florida Airports

At this time there are no direct flights to St. Augustine, Florida. Getting here, though, is still a breeze…

Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) or Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) are the two closest commercial airports. We fly in and out of Jacksonville as there seems to be a wider variety of flights at a better price.

Once you arrive you could rent a car or have our recommended local shuttle service, Airport Shuttle of St. Augustine, ready and waiting to whisk you off to St. Augustine. All of the major car rental agencies can be found at the terminals. Both airports are located within a few miles of Interstate 95. See above for further driving directions.

The St. Augustine Airport is located just north of town and can accommodate most private and corporate jets. The facility, managed by Galaxy Aviation, includes an 8,000 ft runway with large well lit ramps.

We recommend Airport Shuttle of St. Augustine, Inc. They offer great on-time service with courteous drivers. When you arrive at either the Jacksonville or Daytona, Florida Airports they will be waiting for you with a clean late model vehicle. Also, they offer service to and from the Amtrak station in Palatka, the Jacksonville Cruise Line and Greyhound stations.

Whatever your needs Airport Shuttle of St. Augustine will be there for you.
