Columbia is just about halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City. Because of the locations of the airports in these two cities, it takes about 1:40 to drive to St. Louis Airport, and 2:15 to drive to Kansas City Airport. Most major airlines fly to these two airports. To get from St Louis or K.C. airport to Columbia one can either:
