Melbourne International Airport
Melbourne International Airport is the closest airport to Port Canaveral, located about 30 miles away. Atlantic Jet Center is the full-service FBO located at Melbourne international. Upon arrival at the FBO, you can leave immediately in a rental car or relax in the comfortable lounge and watch the big screen television, go online, catch up with the local newspapers, or have a snack. Since Melbourne International is so close and so much quieter than the other area airports, many cruisers choose to fly in and then go directly to Port Canaveral.
Orlando International Airport
Orlando International Airport is one of the best-known airports in the world, so many choose to take an Orlando jet charter and enjoy the area a little before cruising. The airport houses two FBOs, so you can feel like a VIP in spite of the high traffic at the airport. The airport is located just minutes from all of the Orlando attractions such as Disney World and Universal Studios and is just about 45 miles from Port Canaveral. You can spend a day or two enjoying the sunshine, palm trees, and attractions before setting sail.
Daytona Beach International Airport
If you would rather experience the thrills of the Daytona races or visit the “World’s Most Famous Beach,” you can take a private jet charter into Daytona Beach. The airport is walking distance from Daytona’s most popular attractions and is about 75 miles from Port Canaveral. The FBO at DAB is sophisticated, attractive, and efficient enough to go above and beyond to meet your needs.
Orlando Sanford International Airport
Orlando Sanford International Airport is about 60 miles from Port Canaveral. This smaller airport is a popular alternative to Orlando International because of the lighter traffic and more rural location.
