Telluride raising air service again

Coming off a record 2014-15 winter season, Telluride is set to raise air service to unprecedented levels again for Winter 2015-16.

New flights to the Telluride/Montrose (MTJ) airport include New York-La Guardia on United, Los Angeles and Chicago on American, and Las Vegas with Allegiant. Dallas-Ft. Worth and Phoenix will also see major jumps in service to the area.

Last winter´s additions included substantial increases from Dallas-Ft. Worth on American and New York/Newark on United, as well as new service from Phoenix on American to the Telluride/Montrose Airport (MTJ). The additions led to a record number of passengers traveling to the destination.

United, Colorado´s primary carrier, said it will continue to expand on its already-existing network to Telluride/Montrose with the addition of highly sought-after flights from New York – La Guardia (LGA). MTJ´s core hub service will continue with multiple daily, year-round flights from DEN, daily service from Houston and Chicago, along with weekend flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco.
