Kentucky Derby Louisville Private Jet Charter

On May 6 and 7, some of the best horses and racers from around the world come to race at the historic Churchill Downs venue for the Kentucky Derby. All eyes will be on the derby as enthusiasts travel to watch the derby, engage in the historical traditions and place their bets on the possible winners.

Attending the Kentucky Derby is an all-around unforgettable experience, especially as you immerse yourself in the extensive history and tradition involved in the event, from the garland of roses to the winner, the iconic hats and the week-long ceremonies and events leading up to the race.

Airports for the Kentucky Derby

Louisville is the largest city in mostly rural Kentucky, meaning that there is a limited number of airport options compared to other destinations. However, there are still some decisions to make. Your lodging and commute will influence your decision on where to fly into for the Kentucky Derby.

Louisville International Airport

This is the best airport for the Kentucky Derby, bringing your private jet into Lousiville. The airport is set right in the heart of Louisville and provides easy access to downtown and some of the best museums the city has to offer. The airport is only an eight-minute drive from the stadium. The only drawback is that Louisville International Airport is the main airport in the city and will be far busier than the other options and surrounded by a lot more traffic.

Bowman Field

Bowman Field is a historic airport located just outside central Louisville. The airport is just over a 15-minute commute from the Derby, making it a very convenient place to plan for your arrival. Bowman Field is one of the oldest operating airports in the world, so flying into the smaller and quieter airport also gives you the opportunity to explore history on your way to the Kentucky Derby. The character of the airport alone, and the smaller number of travelers, may be enough reason to choose to land here.

Samuels Field

Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, Samuels Field offers a slightly quieter arrival location for the event as it is set away from the far busier Louisville International Airport. Samuels Field is a 45-minute commute from the Kentucky Derby and will give you more of a chance to explore the history surrounding Louisville.

Other airports that are within 50 miles of the event but outside of Louisville include Clark Regional Airport in Jeffersonville, Elizabethtown Regional Airport in Elizabethtown and Capital City Airport in Frankfort.
