TELLURIDE, Colorado (September 8, 2017) – Telluride will once again see a jump in air service for the 2017-18 winter season, continuing to add flight options and ranking among the best in mountain resorts for access.
Telluride is adding yet another hub to its list of direct flights with Charlotte (CLT) service to Telluride/Montrose Airport (MTJ) on American Airlines. Charlotte, American’s second largest hub, provides great connectivity for eastern and international travelers to easily access Telluride. Flights from CLT to MTJ will run Saturdays from Dec. 23, 2017 through March 31, 2018.
As American continues to push forward in leaps for the Telluride region, Dallas (DFW) will see an added second daily flight over Thanksgiving and third daily flight over the Christmas/New Year’s holidays, complementing daily mainline jet service and twice-daily flights through the bulk of the season. American flights from Phoenix-Sky Harbor (PHX) will continue to run daily through the winter, along with service from Chicago (ORD) and Los Angeles (LAX).
Delta Airlines will operate new flights this winter from Salt Lake City (SLC) to MTJ over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. This service provides excellent access for those traveling from the west, as well as Delta’s eastern hubs, and is a precursor to adding a possible season-long route next year. Delta will continue to fly three times a week from Atlanta (ATL) to MTJ as well.
Core-carrier United Airlines will run an additional daily Denver (DEN)-MTJ flight, bringing that total to 4-6 per day through the season. United will also continue to operate daily flights from Houston (IAH) and Chicago (ORD), along with 1-3 flights weekly from New York’s La Guardia (LGA), Newark (EWR), Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO).
Telluride is still reveling in the return of commercial flights to Telluride Airport (TEX), just 10 minutes from town and the ski area. TEX will continue to see daily service throughout the year from Denver (DEN) on United partner Great Lakes Airlines, averaging 10 flights per week.
Low-cost carrier Allegiant will continue service into MTJ from Los Angeles (LAX) twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays…
