The Midwestern state of Michigan is home to many of the US’s great lakes, which played a part in the state’s name. The name Michigan can be traced back to the Ojibwe word “mishigamaa”, which means "large water" or "large lake". The only state to consist of two peninsulas, Michigan is bordered by Ohio and Indiana to the south and Wisconsin to the east, and shares a water boundary with Illinois, Minnesota and the Canadian province of Ontario. Michigan is served by many airports, the top five of which are listed below:

  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is Michigan's busiest and largest airport and one of the biggest airline hubs in the US. Six runways mean it can easily accommodate private jet charters.
  • Bishop International Airport in Flint underwent major renovations in 2007 and is now one of the most luxurious airports in Michigan.
