Air travel to Ashland
Ashland has a small airport that is not served by a commercial carrier. However, Medford, situated about 15 miles to the northwest of Ashland, is served by several major airlines: United [via United Express], Alaska [via Horizon Air], Delta [via SkyWest out of Salt Lake City], and Allegiant. Car rentals (Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, and National/Alamo) are available at the airport. The airport is also served by several taxi and shttle companies, some of which may be found by going to this website: http://www.co.jackson.or.us/Page.asp?NavID=2532. The airport is about a 25 minute drive from the University.
