At KSTP (St. Paul Downtown Airport / Holman Field), 18 miles ENE

When time is money why not save both and visit St. Paul Downtown Airport and St. Paul Flight Center(KSTP)on your next stop in the Twin Cities.

Fact
Downtown St. Paul 5 miles.
Downtown Minneapolis 12 miles.
St. Paul Flight Center and the St. Paul Downtown Airport are the closest airport to both St. Paul downtown and downtown Minneapolis. With drive times to both downtown business districts under a half and hour, St. Paul Downtown Airport is the clear choice when visiting the Twin Cities.

With a plethora of fuel programs offered, I am confident we can save you money on your trip as well.
