Telluride, Colorado's airport will increase service once again for the 2017-18 winter season. 

The airport is adding 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 connectivity for eastern and international travelers to easily access the mountain destination. Flights are scheduled to run Saturdays from December 23 through March 31, 2018.

Dallas (DFW) will also add a 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 add new flights this season from Salt Lake City (SLC) to MTJ over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The company 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 the total to 4-6 flights per day throughout 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).

Low-cost carrier Allegiant will continue service into MTJ from Los Angeles (LAX) twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
