Closest Airports to Sanibel, FL?

What other airports are close to Sanibel, FL? I know that Fort Myers is really close, but what other options are there? I would prefer an airport that is less than 2 hours away from Sanibel Island, if possible.

Thanks!

Actually Fort Meyers is the closest to Sanibel and I believe that Sarasota would be the next closest but that would probably be about 1 1/2 hrs away.

Fort Myers is the largest, closest airport.

We flew into Fort Meyers when we stayed at Casa Ybel on Sanibel.

Thanks for the responses! I'll check to see if there are any flights into Sarasota.

Don't ignore Ft. Lauderdale Airport which has a lot more service than Sarasota. It is about 35 miles futher and may take up to 30 minutes longer that getting from Sanibel to Sarasota airport, maybe 2 1/2 instead of 2 hours.

And don't overlook Tampa. Southwest Airlines serves both Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale and you will often save a great deal using either instead of Ft. Myers
