Billings Airport Guide

Billings has a lot for the visitor to see and do, much of it historic or natural. For a bit of American history visit Pompey’s Pillar which marks the site of Custer’s last stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn. The visitor centre there really brings the story to life. From Billings it’s possible to visit the Yellowstone National Park easily and many use the city as a hub. Just take the Beartooth Highway and you’ll enter the park within a couple of hours. For the kids, there are a number of country based theme parks where they can experience Montanan life from a hundred or more years ago. Whoopah Ride and Pappy’s Adventures are two of the best with daily shows as well as rides.


Billings Airport Directions

Take route 3 from the airport which turns into North 27th Street before getting lost in the maze of the city centre. The journey is only a couple of minutes from the airport – no time at all!


Billings Airport Parking

There are plenty of short term and longer term parking spaces at Billings, over 500 to be exact. All parking is chargeable – you’ll get no period of grace there but the parking is close to the terminal building.


Billings Airport Flight Information

Billings Airport is small and serves only domestic flights within the US. You’ll have to travel to an international airport to make a connection with Denver, Las Vegas or Salt Lake City being the closest. All of them have some flights from Europe and the UK so choose the cheapest and most convenient for you.  


Hotels Near Billings Airport

For a bit of homespun hospitality and a traditional building, we like the Dude Rancher Lodge at $40 a night. Friendly owners and great Montanan food awaits you there. If you prefer modern to traditional, the Lexington Inn and Suites are a good bet at $60 a night and they’ve got a smart indoor pool at the hotel.


Billings Time Zone

Billings is seven hours behind Greenwich Mean Time and located in the Mountain Time Zone (GMT-7)

Billings Info

Billings had an inauspicious beginning as the plan was to build a rail hub for trade in Montana and the nearby town of Coulson was favourite as the site. However Billings won out despite having no water supply and a poor position compared to Coulson. After founding, it rapidly became successful earning it the title of ‘Magic Town’ for the speed of its growth. Coulson finally withered away and Billings continues to enjoy massive growth today.

Billings Trivia:
  • Billings is the largest city in Montana with over 100,000 people living there
  • It was named after the founder of the Northern Pacific Railroad whose trains brought wealth to the city
  • Billings is the centre for the Montanan oil industry and the wealth created has helped it avoid recession.
  • The city is a key centre for visitors to the Yellowstone National Park
