Find your best option for an Acadia National Park airport from the cheap flight options to Bar Harbor, Bangor, Portland and Boston, Massachusetts. If your summer vacation plans include this once exclusive resort community and national park on Maine’s Mount Desert Island, here are your airline ticket options for flights into the area:

Bar Harbor Airport

Hancock County Bar Harbor Airport (BHB) is the airport closest to the park. It located between Bar Harbor and Ellsworth about ten minutes from the Acadia National Park. Approximately 15,000 people fly into and out of the airport, meaning that it does not have much airline passenger traffic.

Flights are available to BHB from Boston’s Logan International Airport aboard Cape Air, a partner with Jet Blue. PenAir offers flights to Bar Harbor from Boston daily during the summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Elite Airways also offers service to Bar Harbor direct from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on Fridays and Sundays during the summer. Silver Airways recently started offering flights between Fort Lauderdale and Bar Harbor.
