CVG Airport Parking Options

Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport has four runways and over 7,700 acres of land. It is one of the largest airports in the US based on land area. CVG is actually in Northern Kentucky (hence the name), just about 15 minutes South of downtown Cincinnati.

Many assumptions were made about the origin of its airport code, and one theory is that CVG came from the acronym “Cincinnati Very Good." The truth is that the code was coined from the town Covington, the nearest town to the airport when it was built in 1947, and it was confirmed by the airport’s spokesperson.

Being an international airport and a Delta hub, it has a number of different parking options, including a TANK bus that picks up at 5th and Elm downtown and takes you to the airport for $2.00.

    There are hotel options as well, but with pricing at around $5 per day (not much cheaper than 3rd party lots), I'm not sure why you'd use them.
