Lancaster does not have a commercial airport. It is wise to compare airfares among the various airports. Harrisburg is a regional airport just 30 miles away. Be sure to compare rental car rates from the various airports before booking your flight to determine the best airfare/car rental combination.
Planning an extra day or two to visit local points of interest — and there are many — is recommended. If you fly into a D.C. airport, you can visit the nation's capital before or after the convention.
