Parking at the Peoria Airport

The most economical way to get to the airport is via the Peoria CityLink bus, which you can pick up at many locations in downtown Peoria.

Restaurants in the Peoria Airport
If you are looking for a quick beverage or full meal, you can find what you need at one of the two Hangar Too locations inside of the terminal building. The restaurants are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering sandwiches, grilled foods and other options, as well as a full-service bar. If you just want a grab-and-go snack or cold beverage, you can use the vending machines found next to the land-side restaurant and adjacent to the Premier Lounge. Enjoy your travels, wherever they may take you, and remember to use Orbitz.com the next time you need to book cheap flights from Peoria.
