In Henderson County, situated right in the middle between Asheville and Hendersonville, is the Asheville Regional Airport. Although small in size, it is a beautiful building, with local artwork.
The Asheville Airport has made a great commitment to showcasing local artists and I just recently had the opportunity to see first hand one of their shows when I dropped a friend off for a flight. They have just completed a small Museum Style area for displaying local artists and it is really nice.
There is plenty of parking for all of your needs, whether for dropping someone off, or long term parking for extended trips out.

This too is a smaller airport, but offers a different set of airlines as the Asheville Regional Airport, giving us more options for who we fly with, and in prices as well. Both are convenient so it works either way! Check out both before booking your flight and see which one gives you the most convenience!
