Located in the southwest of Colorado in the San Juan Mountains -- part of the intrigue of the vibrant mountain town of Telluride is it's remoteness relative to many other ski towns located along the I-70 corridor in Colorado-- but remote does not mean that it is difficult to arrive in Telluride.
The Colorado Flights Alliance, formerly the Telluride Montrose Regional Air Organization, has just announced the summer 2013 flight schedule for Montrose and Telluride airports -- and with additional flights and larger planes, more visitors will be able to easily make their way to our mountain paradise!
Montrose is located 65.6 miles from Telluride, or about an hour and twenty five minute drive away. The airport is larger than the Telluride Airport and as a result it can accommodate bigger planes and more passengers. May through October the Montrose airport facilitates the arrival and departure of daily flights from Denver, CO. and Dallas, TX., as well as Wednesday and Saturday flights from Houston, TX. Additionally, this upcoming winter, visitors to the area may take advantage of added flights from Chicago, IL. and Atlanta, GA. and larger aircrafts flying in and out from Los Angeles, CA.
The Telluride airport offers daily flights from Denver. This highly convenient flight puts visitors right into town, after a quick 55 minute flight over the Rocky Mountains on a small 18 passenger plane. As an added bonus passengers enjoy aerial views of the breathtaking landscape of the area as they descend into Telluride!
