Minneapolis St Paul International Airport is located alongside the Mississippi River in the town of Mendota around 8 miles south of Minneapolis, and 10 miles south west of neighbouring St Paul, the other city that it serves. The airport is a major travel hub for Delta Air Lines, and Northwest Airlines, and handles around 25 million passengers each year.
Minneapolis has become a very popular business destination in recent years, attracting much investment from around the world, and as such is becoming increasingly important for travellers. As with most American cities, the infrastructure has been created around drivers, so having a car to get around the city is essential. Parking is available throughout the city, and is reasonably priced. It is important to book your vehicle in advance of travel, as otherwise you might not be able to confirm the specific size you want, or get the best deals.
In Terminal 1 (Lindbergh), the car rental desks are located on levels 2 and 3 between the blue and red parking ramps, while in Terminal 2 (Humphrey), they can be found on the ground floor of the Ground Transport Centre, adjacent to the Purple Parking Ramp. Alamo, Avis, Budget , Budget , Dollar, Hertz and National all have rental desks at both Terminal s at Minneapolis Airport.
From the centre of Minneapolis, head South along the North Loop as far as Loring Park where the road turns East and becomes Route 94. After about 2.5 miles, turn right onto Hiawatha Avenue, which takes you south towards the airport. Turn briefly left onto the Crosstown highway before turning right onto the airport entrance road.
