Flights to Des Moines

Take off across the Great Plains

Get lost in the great expanses of the USA’s Hawkeye State with our flights to Des Moines. Built from the fruits of a thriving insurance industry, wealthy Des Moines is a peaceful city that’s also home to a booming business scene. Plus, both Iowa and its sleepy capital are key players in kicking off the USA’s presidential elections. Drop by in August for the ten-day Iowa State Fair blowout, which draws in thousands of revellers with country tunes, wandering farm animals and buckets of tasty food.

The Great Plains

Get out of town into the peaceful Great Plains and drink in the never-ending string of tiny villages, sprawling farms, and flourishing agricultural fields that make Iowa the USA’s main grain producer. Head south to the rustic towns and open lands of Madison County, and visit the near utopian villages of the 19th century Amana Colonies for arts, crafts, and local produce.

Bohemian vibes

To the east of Des Moines, university town and UNESCO City of Literature Iowa City charms with top quality museums and artwork, and a young, bohemian vibe. With our Des Moines flights, you’ll be setting off into the distance in Iowa before you know it.
