Flights to Frankenmuth

Looking for cheap and easy Flights to Frankenmuth?  Check out our tips below!

The easiest and most convenient Flights to Frankenmuth Michigan (in our opinion) is flying into Flint Bishop International Airport or MBS International Airport (Saginaw area). 

Both airports are very easy to navigate and are my top choices especially when I am flying alone.  It is very easy to obtain or drop off a rental car and easy to find your gate.  These flights to Frankenmuth elicit minimal stress, which is key for me.

The airport code for Flint is FNT and the airport code for Saginaw is MBS. Rental cars can be obtained from either airport.  We utilize Avis most of the time. 

It takes about 35 minutes to drive to Frankenmuth Michigan from either airport so basically the deciding factor boils down to flight costs and convenient flight times.

I've compiled a travel packing checklist that may help you to not forget anything while packing for an upcoming trip.  I especially use this list if I have to pack quickly. 

But really, as long as you have your essentials-contacts, glasses and medications you can buy anything you forgot. Remembering that takes a lot of pressure off while packing!
