Amarillo, Texas, evokes the true spirit of the Old West: Wide-open spaces, rustic ranches, antique shops, and yes, giant cattle statues. It’s a genuine country town where you can still be a cowboy, at least for a day. Fly into Rick Husband Amarillo Airport (AMA) and you’ll find Texas-sized adventure in the capital of the Panhandle.
Transportation From AMA
Recent airport updates have made Amarillo flights comfortable and convenient. Disembark through the unique glass-walled boarding bridges, then exit past the ticket counters to street level to connect with your taxi or shuttle. There are no airport-run services, but there are options available for private reservations. Note that even taxis should be arranged before you arrive. If you’re headed to locations in the Panhandle and beyond, make sure to book one of the hotels near Rick Husband Amarillo International and get a good night’s rest. Staying in the city? Renting a car may be the best option to get around and see the sights. Several major rental car companies are available; you’ll find the desks near the baggage claim area. Pay a visit to Old Route 66, the historic downtown neighborhood. Fill up on classic Texas barbecue or Amarillo Tex-Mex, then catch premier live music or search for treasure in the world-class shops on “Antique Row.” Flights to Amarillo are your gateway to a golden American age.
