Car Hire Killeen

Killeen Airport Guide

Killeen is not the kind of place you would visit on holiday unless you are visiting friends or family. Most people have a connection with the base and if you can get a pass to visit it you’ll find a fascinating military ‘city’ whose atmosphere is quite different. There’s a great museum dedicated to US cavalry over the centuries which is informative and up to date. Outside the base, Killeen is mainly known as a shopping destination with several malls and hundreds of small shops vying for the military dollar. Entertainment is good around the city but be careful in some areas where the military relax.


Killeen Airport Directions

Take route 201 north from the airport until it joins the bigger route 190 which heads east into Killeen. It’s around ten to fifteen minutes by hire car.


Killeen Airport Parking

Parking at Killeen Airport is free for less mobile drivers who have the requisite documentation. Everyone else must pay although there is a 30 minute grace period for dropping off and picking up. The short term parking is immediately in front of the terminal with long stay behind it but still only minutes away.


Killeen Airport Flight Information

Although Killeen is a very small airport, it still has flights from Dallas, Houston and Atlanta making it easier to get an international connection to those airports from Europe and the UK. The nearest airport with direct connections to the UK is over two hours away in Dallas.

Killeen Info

Killeen would be a small, insignificant village today were it not for Fort Hood which borders the city. Whilst the early days of Killeen were based on the railway and the export of cotton, the army base, which opened in the 1940s, has spared it the demise of other cotton towns. Today, the focus in the city is on military families in the light of extensive dangerous overseas duties.

Killeen Trivia:
  • Killeen’s economy is almost totally dependent on the huge Fort Hood army base next to the town
  • The city grew from being a depot on the railway line that crossed Texas
  • It was named after the chief engineer, Frank Killeen
  • Fort Hood, originally Camp Hood was constructed in the Second World War and has since grown to be one of the largest US army bases
