Car Rental Deals at Columbia Airport (CAE)

Columbia Metropolitan Airport is the primary airport for central South Carolina and the state’s capital city. Opened in 1940 as Lexington County Airport it was mostly used as a base for the US Army and later the US Air Force. It was also known as the Columbia Army Airbase and over the years it was used as an important military training center. After the war the first public airport terminal was built in the early 1950s and then replaced around 1965. Much of that later terminal building still remains, although obviously it has been renovated and expanded some since then. Because it was a former military base, Columbia Airport has longer runways than would normally be expected at a smaller airport, with one stretching for 8,000 feet and the other to 8,600 feet. That allows Columbia Airport to accept any size airplane, even the massive Boeing 747. Last year more than 1.1 million people traveled through Columbia Airport, which has the airport code of CAE.
