Explore Dubuque

Beginning September 2022 air service to the Dubuque Regional Airport will be suspended due to the pilot shortage. For those of you flying to the Growing Sustainable Communities Conference, there are several  airports within 1.5 hour radius of Dubuque. Nearby airports include: Madison, WI (MSN); Moline, IL (MLI), or Cedar Rapids, IA (CID). O'Hare (ORD) is the closest major airport and is approximately 3 hours via car to Dubuque. We haven't found any viable shuttle options so for now you should assume you’ll need to rent a car or share a ride. To help with this process, we've enabled the ride share option on the Whova App. To participate and find a ride to share, fill out this form. We are sorry for this inconvenience and look forward to hosting you in Dubuque!
