Best Time to Fly to Columbia Airport
Due to its location in the centre of the country, Missouri experiences a decidedly humid climate with rainy springtimes, hot summers, and mild autumns, and cold winters. The high season for tourism runs from June to August. If you're travelling to the city during these months, be prepared to pay much higher airfares and hotel rates than you would during the off-peak season. If you don't mind rainy weather, you can usually find much better flight and accommodation deals during the spring months (March to May). Otherwise, the ideal time to visit Columbia is during the fall months (September to November), when flights and hotels are cheap, and the climate is mild and dry.
