I would like to see people's recommendation for flying to South Dakota from Charlotte (CLT). I will be staying in Wessington, SD which is located 140 miles West from Sioux Falls, SD. After a little research I see that both Sioux Falls and Pierre are options to fly into.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! I am looking for the most cost efficient flight.

Just a quick thought, you could drive to Kinston, NC then fly to SFB and then to FSD on G4. That's just the first thing that came to mind for me. Or you could fly NW CLT-MPS-FSD

Well, the closest airport is actually in Huron, served by Great Lakes from Denver. So you could fly to DEN on UA or US and connect to Great Lakes there, and get closest to your destination.

But, if you are trying to be cost efficient - when are you going? It would help to find you a low fare.

I tried to run a Kayak search but the website seems to be down.

I'd go with NW if the fair is competitive. You'll have the opportunity to fly a classic DC-9 or modern A319 on the SD-hub routes. Any opportunity to fly the DC-9 one last time is worth considering.


There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

NW serves watertown and Pierre of which are both decently close as well.

Thanks for your input! I will be flying Oct. 4 and returning Oct. 7

I was not aware of Huron. I would not mind driving a little while if the flight ticket will be less expensive because I will have to get a rental car nevertheless.

I'll let you know if I find anything with your recommendations. Thanks again.

I ran a Kayak search for Charlotte to Huron for those dates and used the "nearby airports" option. The cheapest it found was a whole $503 to Watertown (Huron was over $700) on Northwest, but it didn't search Pierre or Sioux Falls. Once I checked those, I found $388 to Pierre on Northwest and $314 to Sioux Falls on United.

The cheapest car rental for those dates out of Sioux Falls is $35 per day at Hertz or Alamo for an economy car.
The same search for Pierre is $72 per day at Avis for an even smaller car. So it looks like flying to Sioux Falls will be the cheapest option for you.

Bookable on United.com: Several options are available for $314. I will list two options - the option with the biggest aircraft and excluding US Airways (i.e. your best service/comfort option) as well as the fastest overall option. Here is the "best service/comfort" option ($314):
OCTOBER 4
United 1299 (Boeing 737-500)
Depart Charlotte 8:40 AM
Arrive Denver 10:21 AM
-- Layover in Denver of 2h26m --
United 386 (Boeing 737-300)
Depart Denver 12:47 PM
Arrive Sioux Falls 3:15 PM

OCTOBER 7
United Express 5854 (CRJ-700 operated by Skywest)
Depart Sioux Falls 6:00 AM
Arrive Chicago-O'Hare 7:32 AM
-- Layover in Chicago of 3h8m --
United 1136 (Boeing 737-300)
Depart Chicago-O'Hare 10:40 AM
Arrive Charlotte 1:34 PM

Here is the fastest option ($314):
OCTOBER 4
United 899 (Airbus A319)
Depart Charlotte 10:00 AM
Arrive Chicago-O'Hare 11:10 AM
-- Layover in Chicago of 1h17m --
United Express 5824 (CRJ-200 operated by Skywest)
Depart Chicago-O'Hare 12:27 PM
Arrive Sioux Falls 2:05 PM

OCTOBER 7
United Express 5854 (CRJ-700 operated by Skywest)
Depart Sioux Falls 6:00 AM
Arrive Chicago-O'Hare 7:32 AM
-- Layover in Chicago of 1h32m --
United Express 7153 (CRJ-700 operated by Mesa)
Depart Chicago-O'Hare 9:04 AM
Arrive Charlotte 11:57 AM

CHEAPEST RENTAL CAR
Hertz OR Alamo - Economy Car (Chevy Aveo, Hyundai Accent, or similar): $35 per day, unlimited miles
- (Same, regardless of which itinerary you choose) -

To book those itineraries, go to United.com and search by schedule. The price search doesn't list all the options. Hope this helps.

Thanks Alex. I am thinking of waiting out a few more weeks and hoping that the price drops.
