Traveling by air? Fall River is lucky to be positioned within close distance to two international airports. The T.F. Greene Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island is only a thirty five minute drive away. Its international flights are limited (only servicing the Caribbean), but the airport’s small size make it a favorite for locals, who appreciate the ease of traveling through T.F. Greene.

More options can be found at Boston Logan International Airport. The airport is typically an hour drive from Fall River, depending on traffic. Its status as a major U.S. travel hub means that you can often enjoy lower fares and nearly unlimited options when it comes to destinations.
