Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (IATA: XNA) , about a half-hour drive away, is the closest airport with commercial passenger service. Springdale also has its own municipal airport for general aviation.
Springdale straddles a north-south highway with three designations: Interstate 540, US Route 62, and US Route 71. I-540 feeds into I-40 at the town of Alma, about 1 hour south. US-62 and US-71 branch off in neighboring Bentonville. US-71 then continues on over the Missouri border, eventually leading to Joplin.
