The Detroit Metropolitan Airport


The new McNamara Terminal Detroit Metropolitan Airport is the gateway into the Detroit area.

It is one of two Detroit airports, the other being Detroit City Airport which is mostly used by small planes such as Sesnas and helicopters. About five years ago, a new terminal was built at Detroit Metro Airport and it is one of the best terminals I have seen in the country.

This new terminal is called the McNamara Terminal, and it houses Northwest Airlines since Detroit is Northwests's hub as well as Delta, AirFrance, British Airways, Continental, and Lufthansa. One of the most notable features I enjoy and many other people enjoy is the underground tunnel which takes you from one part of the terminal to the next.

The new McNamara Terminal


Music plays and you are surrounded by a rainbow of flowing colors making it feel as if you are in another world. It's a welcome change of pace for a few minutes while you head to your next flight.

If you are not flying Northwest, you will be flying into the Smith terminal which will soon be torn down as soon as the other new terminal is finished. This new terminal will have Detroit with one of the most modern airports in the country.

You will also find good food to chow on while you're waiting for your flight. There are many independent as well as food chain restaurants for you to enjoy. All major airlines fly into Detroit Metropolitan Airport and nobody should have a problem flying into the city unless you're flying in from a very remote place. You can travel to any major destination in the U.S and to and from most places throughout the world. There are plenty of hotels close by the airport if you're planning on a quick stay and you don't want to be far from the airport.

**Good news...the brand new terminal is now open!!**
