Phoenix airport car hire

Airport Code: PHX

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is conveniently located just 3 miles east of downtown Phoenix. It is the main gateway into the city, and a major hub for Great Lakes Airlines and Southwest Airlines.

Interesting to note, Sky Harbor does not have a Terminal 1, but instead numbers its terminals from 2-4. You can take the Phoenix Transit Bus from the airport into the city, or prearrange your own ground transportation for your stay by booking a Phoenix Airport car hire to await your flight's arrival.

Although Phoenix is a city in the middle of a desert, its origins date back to agriculture by the Native Americans as early as the 11th century. The city we know today came about around 1911 with the completion of the first of several large reservoirs in the mountains north and east of Phoenix for Irrigation-based agriculture.

Over time it has become the regions primary political, cultural, and economic and transportation center, giving way to an excellent tourist location with plenty to do and see. Reserve a car hire for Phoenix Airport to begin your adventure in the desert city.

Phoenix Mountains Park

For some excellent exercise during your trip to Phoenix take the one or two hour hike up to the top of Piestewa Peak, set right in the middle of Phoenix in Mountains Park. The peak offers a fantastic 360º view of the city and surrounding landscape.
