Flying to Coachella

Coachella is located at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, meaning that although Coachella doesn’t have it’s own airport, the closest airport is Palm Springs International Airport. Airlines that fly to this airport include American Airlines, Delta Airlines and United Airlines.

However, due to prices and the location flying from, some people choose to fly to other nearby airports such as Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) or San Diego International Airport. You can then get a taxi, rent a car or get on one of a Coachella Shuttle buses from LAX to the festival, for about $50 dollars each way.

How to get to Coachella

Obviously how you will get to Coachella will depend on where you are coming from. Domestic travel within the USA will be different to if you are flying from Europe. Here are some common routes of how to get to Coachella, and which airlines to fly with:

Flights to Coachella from the UK

Flying from London Heathrow, we recommend flying to LAX as this has many more flights arriving from the UK. Airlines that offer non-stop flights include Norwegian Air or Virgin Atlantic. Alternatively, you could plan a short stop-over in Vancouver, and fly with Air Canada for a lower price.

Flights to Coachella from Dublin

To fly to Coachella from Dublin, we again recommend to fly to LAX. Flights here from Dublin are considerably cheaper than flying to the closer Palm Springs. Aer Lingus fly direct from Dublin to LAX, but to make it cheaper, airlines that fly this route with a stopover at London Heathrow include American Airlines. Check out our blog to find out how to plan the perfect stopover.

Flying domestically to Coachella means that you have more options of where to fly to, however it will still be cheaper to fly to LAX. From JFK airport, you can fly to LAX with airlines such as Alaska Airlines, Delta or American Airlines. Alternatively, if you want to fly to Palm Springs, we recommend flying with airlines such as United, from New York La Guardia with a short stopover at Houston Airport, or from New York JFK to with American Airlines with a short stopover at Phoenix Airport.

You can choose to fly to Palm Springs Airport from Las Vegas McCarran with American Airlines which will feature a stopover at Phoenix. Alternatively, you can fly directly if choosing to fly to LAX, with Alaska, United or Delta.
