Flying In?

If you plan to fly into Oklahoma for Take Root, Oklahoma City is your destination of choice. Will Rogers International Airport is located about 30 minutes from Norman and is easily accessible. Several shuttle services and taxis are available to transport people from OKC to Norman. Airport Express, Oklahoma Shuttle, and Thunder Cab are a few examples. Many of them have reduced rates for larger groups going to the same destination.
