You can fly into the Salisbury Airport and take the Bayrunner Shuttle to Ocean City.  I believe US AIr flies into Salisbury daily from Philadelphia.

Yes, but you cannot easily fly directly to OC.

The nearest airport to OC with commercial flights is Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport (SBY) which is about 35 miles from OC. You will need to rent a car or take a cab (about $60) to get to OC. American Airlines is the only carrier at this airport, with flights to and from Philadelphia, PA (PHL) and Charlotte, NC (CLT) only.

Ocean City Municipal Airport (OXB) is about 5 miles outside of OC, but is General Aviation only with no commercial flights. You would need to own a plane or charter one to fly into here.

There are four large commercial airports that are the best options for flying to OC,  but they are each about a 3 hour drive from the airport to OC. These airports are Washington-Dulles (IAD), Washington-National (DCA), Baltimore-Washington (BWI), and Philadelphia (PHL). You can pick the one with the best price for when you are flying (It is often, but not always, BWI). If you fly to BWI, you can take the Bayrunner Shuttle to OC. From the other airports your best way to get to OC will be to rent a car (or from PHL you can fly to SBY). I know that if you rent from Enterprise, you can rent at the airport and return the car in OC (may be true for other rental car companies too).

Once you are in OC it is easy to get around by city bus ($3 to ride all day) or taxi.

Hope one of these options works, and you have a great trip to OC!

The Salisbury airport is the closest place to fly in.  You would still have about a half an hour drive though.

I know others from the Burgh who drive and it is not a bad drive at all!

Enjoy!
