Heading into the Winter 2016-17 season, Telluride will once again see a major jump in air service, continuing to add options and ranking among the best in mountain resorts for access.

With two airports serving the destination, Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) and Telluride Regional Airport (TEX), major additions are coming to both this winter.

Telluride is reveling in the return of commercial flights to TEX, just 10 minutes from town and the ski area. TEX will once again see daily commercial service beginning December 17th. The Denver to Telluride flights will be provided by Great Lakes (United partners) and will run year-round, averaging 10 flights per week.

Telluride/Montrose (MTJ) is also boasting new Denver service with the addition of twice-weekly Allegiant Air flights. The low-cost carrier looks to provide an affordable option to the I-70 corridor skier from the Denver area, as well as great local outbound access. Along with the new 35-minute, $9 commuter train from downtown Denver to Denver International Airport, the ease and cost of getting to destination skiing for Denver locals just took a major turn for the better.

For the third straight year, the region will see a major jump in service to MTJ on the American Airlines network. Flights from Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) will now begin on November 18th and run twice daily during the core parts of the season, including mainline jets. Flights from Phoenix-Sky Harbor (PHX) will now run daily through the season, where they had been 2-5x weekly previously. Service will also continue from Chicago (ORD) and Los Angeles (LAX) on American.

For MTJ core carrier United, Denver (DEN) will see mainline jets on the midday flights, among the 3-6 daily options through the season. United is offering larger jets from Houston (IAH) on Saturdays once again, and adding a flight to make three-per-week from San Francisco (SFO). Daily flights continue from ORD, with 1-3 flights weekly from New York (LGA), New York/New Jersey (EWR) and Los Angeles (LAX).
