The first (and most important) piece of information is that if you're flying to visit, you need to fly to Indianapolis, Indiana (code: IND).  There are no commercial passenger flights to Bloomington, Indiana.  Please make sure that you do not purchase tickets to Bloomington, for if you do, you will be flying to Bloomington, Illinois.  Bloomington, Illinois, is a five hour drive from Bloomington, Indiana.  Please make sure your travel agent is aware that you want to fly to Indianapolis.

Secondly, since many of you are coming from abroad, please be aware that there are neither non-stop nor direct flights into Indianapolis from Europe or Asia.  Limited destinations are available non-stop from Mexico.
