Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport Car Rental
Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is in a peripheric area in the city called Romulus, which gave its name to the airport for short time.
Since 1930, year of the inauguration, the Metropolitan Airport was expanded up to become the biggest airport in the country and it currently includes 6 runways and 2 main terminals: the Edward H. McNamara and the North Terminal.
The first terminal has 121 gates and is exclusively used by Delta Air Lines, Air France and Virgin, which are part of the SkyTeam alliance. In addition to many galleries with shops and different restaurants, within it there is a tram that connects the two extremities in about 3 minutes. Instead the second terminal has only 26 gates, two of which are equipped in order to guarantee long-haul routes.
You can pick your rental car up, booked online on RentalUp, directly on your arrival at Detroit Airport, and you just have to cover a distance of about 38 km to reach the city, with an estimate average time of 30 minutes: you can get there from three different ways through the Interstate-94 West, the Interstate-5 South and the Interstate 235.
The first two pass through the city centre and allow a fast arrival to the eastern and central areas, whereas the third one passes aside the airport in the direction North-South, connecting all the Western area of Detroit.
