TELLURIDE, Colorado (September 12, 2017) – Telluride is more accessible than ever, as more flight options have been added for the 2017-18 winter season.

Charlotte Douglas International (CLT) is the latest airport added to the list of direct flights to Montrose-Telluride Regional Airport (MTJ) on American Airlines. Flights from CLT to MTJ will run Saturdays from December 23, 2017 through March 31, 2018. Charlotte is American’s second largest hub.

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 Montrose-Telluride (MTJ) over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. This service provides 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.

United Airlines will run an additional daily Denver (DEN) to Montrose-Telluride (MTJ) flight, bringing that total to 4-6 per day through the season.

Telluride Regional Airport (TEX), just 10 minutes from town and the ski area, 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.

This winter’s added service brings the total to 15 non-stop flights (16 over the holiday season) from 12 major hubs for the 2017-18 winter, marking an overall increase of 43% in air accessibility to the Telluride region over the last three years.
