How to Get to Bethlehem

Fly

Lehigh Valley International Airport (map) serves the greater Lehigh Valley metropolitan area and is located about 10 to 15 minutes north of downtown Bethlehem by car. It is served by several legacy carriers, including Delta Connection, Continental Express, United Express, and US Airways. Each offers several daily flights to their Eastern U.S. hubs. Air Canada Jazz offers flights to Toronto, and the airport usually has at least one low-cost airline with service to Orlando-Sanford. Other airports in the general vicinity are Philadelphia International Airport (map) and Newark International Airport (map). As these are hubs for major airlines, and generally speaking much larger airports, flying into Philly or New York can save you a bundle. Expect a 90-minute drive from Philadelphia and about 2 hours from Newark, depending on traffic.
