What's the best way to fly from South Florida to Asheville?

Hello,

We will be flying for the first time from South Florida to Asheville the first week of July.

Has anyone made this trip? The prices seem pretty high, and it looks like there's no easy way to get there.

We are in Boca Raton, between Palm Beach airport and Fort Lauderdale airport and can depart from either.

What's the closest airport to Asheville?

Any information/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Price wise I would fly to Atlnata or Charlotte and drive the rest of the way.

Check the available alternatives for flying into Asheville ( AVL), Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP) and Charlotte (CLT). The Asheville airports is 30 minutes from downtown but EXTREMELY convenient, easy to get in and out of...but the flights in and out are more limited and usually the costs are higher. The Charlotte airport is an easy 2 hour drive from downtown Asheville, and flights tend to be much cheaper. I flew to/from Charlotte to Jacksonville in December for $180 round trip.

Atlanta is a tougher drive so the price would have to be MUCH cheaper. It is about a 4 hour drive. Charlotte is not bad drive at about 2 hours, Greenville/Spartanburg about 1 hour 15 minutes, and Asheville is obviously the best choice.

I've also heard of people flying into Piedmont Triad Intl in Greensboro because it's generally considered a cheap airport to fly into, depending on the airline. That's about 2 hour 45 min from Asheville.

Thanks to everyone for your advice! We've decided to go with a direct flight to Charlotte and then drive to Asheville. Two hours isn't so bad, and it looks like a beautiful drive!
