Stuttgart Airport (STR IATA). is the 6th busiest airport in Germany, reflecting the city's size and importance. It is situated on the southern outskirts of the city and connected via local rail (S-Bahn) and in the future will also be connected to mainline high-speed railway. The airport is a base for Lufthansa's low-fare sister airline Eurowings. Moreover, most major European carriers have connections to Stuttgart from their main hubs, so there is a wide choice of direct flights to other German and European cities, and even if there is no direct flight from your origin, you will easily find a connection through any of the hubs.
Moreover, Stuttgart's main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) is just an hour away by high-speed train (ICE) from Frankfurt Airport, which is one of Europe's major aviation hubs. Many airlines offer flights to Frankfurt with a connecting train to Stuttgart instead of direct flights to Stuttgart, and as this is very quick and convenient (landing you in the very city center), you should consider this option as well. Delta Air Lines has non-stop service from Atlanta to Stuttgart. United Airlines has daily non-stop service from Newark / New York City. American Airlines offers codeshare service from Frankfurt Airport on the ICE high-speed trains to the Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof (ZWS). These tickets are often cheaper than buying a flight solely to Frankfurt, despite having the additional segment. There is growing low-fare traffic to Stuttgart as well, with easyJet, Ryanair and Vueling all serving the airport from their bases across Europe.

Public transportation is provided by the Stadtbahn (U-bahn) and S-Bahn. For short distances, it is best to use the Stadtbahn (or bus if necessary). For longer distances (to get to the suburbs) the S-Bahn is faster but has fewer stations than the Stadtbahn. Stuttgart's public transport is fully integrated and a travel ticket can be used on any mixture of buses and trains/trams that may be required to complete the journey.
