Killeen, TX, sits in the heart of the Central Texas region, bordered by one of the largest military bases in the world. The city, as well as the base, receives airport services from the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport located just a little over five miles from the city's center. Flights from Killeen are provided at the airport by American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express, with reservations possible through Orbitz.com.
Parking is available at the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport for both short-term and long-term use. Short-term parking for up to 30 minutes is free in either lot, while times of 31 minutes to an hour are charged at a rate of $1.00 in both lots. Additional charges of $1 an hour apply after that, with a daily maximum of $10 in the short-term lot and $8 in the long-term lot. Daily rates continue at the lot daily maximum, with the weekly maximums of $60 for the short-term lot and $48 for the long-term lot. The short-term lot is located across the street from the airport terminal, and the long-term lot is adjacent on the opposite side.
Transport to the airport is available through the various taxi companies operating in the city. Taxis are metered, with the fare to the airport dependent on the pickup point. Shuttle service is available by reservation through ANS Shuttle Service.
Stopping off on the way to the airport for a meal is a good way to begin your journey. The Texas Roadhouse in Killeen provides tasty and filling meals for lunch and dinner.
