Northeast Philadelphia Airport is located just north of the intersection of Grant Avenue and Ashton Road. This small civilian airport is a part of Philadelphia International Airport. It is meant for decongesting the main airport. It is the sixth Pennsylvania's busiest airport. The airport was founded in the 40s of the last century. At first it was a military airbase, but in 1944 it was handed over at the city's disposal. The airport has two runways. It services private flights, air taxi, helicopters, and military aircraft. Besides, it services corporate international flights of some United States agencies. However, it does not take regular flights.
The most convenient way to get to the city from the airport or vice versa is a taxi service. Having made a preliminary online reservation, you can be sure that the driver will meet you on time after the landing. Several buses run near the airport (number 20 goes via Academy Rd; number 19 and 50 go via Grant Ave).
