How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Columbus
If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport restaurants and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Columbus, follow these suggestions:

  • Security personnel will request to see your boarding pass and travel ID upon arrival. Keep them in a convenient place, so they’re ready for inspection.
  • You’ll need to stop the music for a few minutes. Headphones must be taken off and put in a tub for X-raying. The same goes for items such as keys and coins.
  • Laptops must be taken out of their protective cases and placed in a tray prior to being X-rayed.
  • Flying with your favorite cologne? As long as it’s no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it with you in your hand luggage.
  • Think about the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they’re easy to slip out of when you’re doing the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • Put any multi-tools or other dangerous items inside your checked luggage. Airport security won’t allow these on the aircraft.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Flights To Columbus

Close your eyes, and imagine a time when horse-drawn carriages galloped through the streets and boats traveled in a hurry toward the shore to unload their wares. Back before cellphone alerts occupied the mind, there was a time when the day was tracked by the sun and a westward mentality inspired great exploration. Today, some American cities pay homage to the times of yore by maintaining relics and appreciating the simple things. Columbus, Ohio, is one such place.

The capital of Ohio is steeped in American history: Its roots trace back to 1812. When you fly into the Port of Columbus International Airport (CMH), you’re just steps away from the city's roots. Throughout the area, there are numerous prehistoric Indian burial mounds; at the Mound City Group National Monument at Chillicothe, 23 unique humps rise up from the ground. Other sites, including the Franklin Park Conservatory and Fort Hayes pay tribute to important parts of local history. The only thing between you and a getaway in the steps of history is booking one of our flights to Columbus.

Transportation from CMH

When your Columbus flight lands on the tarmac, everything from the iconic North Market and juicy burgers of The Thurman Café sing to your soul. Thankfully, you’re never far away from the city’s attractions, thanks to the diverse transportation options. Most hotels close to Port Columbus International offer free airport transfers, and you can purchase a ticket to ride the CMH shuttle bus into the city. The Central Ohio Transit Authority also offers bus services from the airport to the city and surrounding areas, and taxis and limousines are available for hire. Book a rental car when you book Columbus plane tickets, and you can explore Greater Ohio at your leisure. A number of car rental kiosks are also located at the airport arrival terminals.

Hotels Near CMH

You saved big on your Columbus airfare and you deserve to indulge in a stay at one of the best hotels in the city. Book a room or suite at one of these centrally located accommodations, and the city is your oyster:

  • Hyatt Regency Columbus: Staying in the Arena District, all the flavors of the city are within reach of your taste buds. Check out trendy bars and spend your mornings at cheerfully chic cafes. At the end of every day, the plush bedding and upscale amenities of the hotel keep you cozy.
  • Hilton Columbus Downtown: You’re surrounded by art when you stay at the Hilton Columbus Downtown. More than 200 original works adorn the halls here, and the contemporary vibe only adds to the feeling that you’re staying in a private art gallery.
  • The Blackwell Inn and Pfahl Conference Center: The Blackwell prides itself on elegance and sophistication. Enjoy nightly chef specials at the restaurant and sip on cocktails at the evening happy hour. This is the only hotel on the Ohio State University campus, so you’re never far from the Buckeye crowd.
