Norfolk International Airport is located just 1.5 hours from the Outer Banks and is an easy commute.

Most Vacationers electing to Fly will more often rent a car and make the drive to OBX. If a shuttle is preferred, there are services available – see shuttles. The availablility and schedules vary depending on the time of year (seasonal).
