It's 2022, and flying just isn't what it used to be. Call me nostalgic but I pine for the days where people dressed up when traveling by air. Those years are long gone, but CVG is still a great airport. The on-site parking just got a huge overhaul. The concourses and terminals all feel very modern and new. I never do this, but minus one star for having a Gold Star Chili instead of a Skyline Chili in Concourse B.
Be aware that Long Term Parking is not adjacent to the airport, and requires a shuttle. There will be a wait for it, so prepare for inclement weather. The system is that they have a rolling shuttle team that notifies of waiting customers by radio. The shuttle comes to your assigned row. Gets you there but adds extra time, so it would be wise to factor an extra half hour to forty five minutes if you need long term parking.
UPDATE: left at 9 for a 12pm flight. Live 30 minutes away. On a Thursday morning a shuttle was there immediately to take us to the terminal. Do much smoother with the extra time.
This airport is pretty easy to get in and out. There are two main terminals A and B. For all my Delta travelers, you will be spending time in B.
They have a team that runs back and forth between the two terminals. If it is not there, walking is just as fast. I would rather walk for five minutes rather than wait five and ride another four to get there.
One thing I like about the airport are all the dinosaur bones throughout. It’s a fun little touch for some cool photo ops.
The parking garage is easy to get in and out of, but finding a spot is damn near impossible. Took me about 15 minutes going up and down the isles.
Lots of food choices and space to walk around while waiting too.
Always a good quick experience with CVG airport. Entry and security are always quick and efficient. Trains to the concourses are quick as well and it's easy to find your terminal. Every time I come to visit, I never worry or feel anxiety when coming into or leaving Cincinnati Airport and there are very few airports I can say that for.
I went here to pick my grandparents up tonight at about 11pm so 3 or so hours before posting this. The cellphone lot was inaccessible due to renovations ended up having to park in the best western parking lot and wait. After they got their it was a nightmare at pickup. Almost no one let anyone in/out. Ended up having to park at the very end of the arrivals to pick them up. Beings it was late I saw no one helping direct anything or making sure people weren't just parked. Some of the cars I know we're just sitting there with there engines off as the drivers were pretty much asleep at the wheel.
My grandma had an awful time because it took 3 phone calls to get someone to come to help her with a wheelchair for transit to baggage claim and to pickup.
It's an otherwise gorgeous airport, very nice layout. I'm rating 4 stars primarily due to my short experience happening at late hour and this being my first experience at this airport.
Small airport with clear signs and minimal lines
I wish the CEO was up to speed on the poor customer service. Smug employees. Once you arrive you are of little concern to the staff.
Get to airport 2 hours before flight!
