There are many airports in Kansas. However, not all Kansas airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports.
Kansas is a Midwestern state in the Central United States. The state is named after the Kansas River that flows through it, which in turn derived its name from the Siouan word Kansa meaning "People of the south wind."
Located in the heartland of the country, Kansas is home to the geographical center of the contiguous United States. Today Kansas is one of the most productive agricultural states, leading the nation in wheat production.
The state, lying in the great central plain of the United States, has a generally flat or undulating surface, and on a large scale is almost perfectly flat. The Missouri River forms nearly 75 miles (120 km) of the state's northeastern boundary. The Kansas River joins the Missouri at Kansas City. The Arkansas River, rising in Colorado, flows with a tortuous course for nearly 500 miles (800 km) across three-fourths of the state.
The eastern two-thirds of the state has a humid continental climate, with cold winters and hot summers. Most of the precipitation falls in the summer and spring.
The western one-third of the state has a semiarid steppe climate. Summers are hot, and often very hot. Winters are cold in the northwest and cool to mild in the southwest. The region is semiarid, receiving on average only about 16 inches (40 cm) of precipitation per year. Chinook winds in the winter can warm western Kansas all the way into the 80 degree Fahrenheit (25 C) range. ()
