    Lynchburg Regional Airport

    Lynchburg Regional Airport (LYH), established in 1931, was originally known as Preston Glenn Airport, named in honor of Lt. Preston Glenn, a Lynchburg native who died in service as an Army Air Corps pilot during World War I. In 1992, the airport’s new terminal facility opened for business. Lynchburg Regional Airport/Preston Glenn Field, located at the intersection of Route 29 South and Route 460, is owned by the City of Lynchburg.

    With 14 daily arriving and departing flights, Lynchburg Regional Airport provides a variety of flight times for all passengers. Regional carrier service is provided by American Eagle Airlines through Charlotte International Airport, whose affiliation with a major flagship airline means easy connection and ticketing no matter where you’re headed.

    Only Lynchburg Regional Airport brings you directly into Region 2000, a 2000-square-mile district in the heart of Virginia. Lynchburg Regional Airport is playing a key role in the region’s growth, serving as a convenient global gateway for the area’s international corporations, manufacturing plants, research and development firms, colleges, and university. The airport's proximity to three major highways, US 29, US 501, and US 460, provides ready access to destinations throughout the region—from business complexes to scenic and historic attractions.

    Passengers should plan to arrive one (1) hour before scheduled flight departure to allow adequate time for checking luggage and obtaining boarding passes before the ticket counter closes.  Note that the airline closes the ticketing counter 30 minutes before the flight, which is strictly enforced.  Airline employees cannot issue boarding passes or check luggage after the counter is closed.
