Phoenix is the closest major city to Tucson and its Sky Harbor Airport is much larger. For Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport information:
**For symposium participants who wish to include a visit to the new Music Instrument Museum in Phoenix, it may make sense to plan on flying out of Phoenix late on Sunday. We will be arranging an optional tour of this exciting museum for the morning of Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013.
Airport Shuttle Services: a general overview.
If you elect to fly into Phoenix and do not plan to drive a rental car south to Tucson, you may wish to take the Arizona Shuttle (see information below) a comfortable mini-bus service between the Phoenix and Tucson airports. The shuttle leaves Phoenix every hour on the half-hour from 6:30 AM to 11:30.
Look for the kiosk in the baggage terminal labeled Greater Arizona Intercity Transportation. The shuttle takes passengers to one of three drop-off sites in Tucson. Fares have recently gone up due to fuel surcharges. Expect to pay between $48-60 round trip. The lowest fares may be obtained by calling 800-888-2749 at 7 days ahead and reserving a seat.
