Telluride Flights Added for Winter

Telluride, Colorado has added 26% more flights into Montrose for the upcoming ski season.  The number of flights will be doubled from Dallas and Phoenix, and more service has been added from Atlanta.  New cities with flights include Las Vegas and LaGuardia/New York City (we already have Newark)

Check out the press release below:

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.

Now with 14 direct flights from 11 major hubs, Telluride offers some of the best, most direct access in ski country.

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.

Winter 2015-16 will see a full-scale increase in Telluride’s American network, including another 50% addition from Dallas-Ft. Worth, more than doubling DFW service over the past two seasons. American will now offer a daily 128-seat mainline jet and two on Saturdays through the winter season from DFW to MTJ. Flights from Phoenix (PHX) will more than double this winter, and American is also adding new routes from Chicago (ORD) and Los Angeles (LAX). The increases in seats and flights will create an expansive American network for Telluride/Montrose, offering access from across the country on the newly merged airline.

“The creation of a national American network is a critical and significant addition to air service for Colorado’s western slope and the Telluride/Montrose region, making getting to Telluride easier than ever,” said Matt Skinner, chief operating officer of Colorado Flights.

United, Colorado’s primary carrier, 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.

“New York has long been Telluride’s number one air market, and the addition of the highly coveted LaGuardia (LGA) route will be a fantastic addition for our existing guests and all skiers in the greater NY metro and beyond,” said Skinner.

Key low-cost partner Allegiant will shift service from Phoenix-Mesa to Las Vegas this winter, along with continued flights from LAX. Flights will now run on Fridays and Mondays the first half of the season, and Thursdays and Sundays the second half.

“With a growing young, active/outdoors demographic in Las Vegas, plus demand from Colorado to get to Las Vegas, Allegiant’s LAS flight will be a great addition for the MTJ airport and Telluride/Montrose region,” added Skinner.

Delta will add Wednesdays to the existing Saturday/Sunday flights from Atlanta (ATL) in the second half of the season.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the significant additions to our air service, giving Telluride/Montrose some of the best access in ski country,” said Skinner. “Guests and residents alike now have multiple, varied options to travel non-stop to and from major hubs across country, easily connecting the whole of North America and the world.”

Summary of additions for Telluride/Montrose (MTJ) winter air schedule includes:

New flights from:

  • New York-LaGuardia (LGA) on United
  • Chicago (ORD) on American
  • Los Angeles (LAX) on American
  • Las Vegas (LAS) on Allegiant

  • Dallas – Ft. Worth (DFW) on American

The Ski Resort, which has been ranked #1 in the annual Conde Nast Reader’s Choice Survey the past three years, will take over hotel operations and management of the HOA. The 73,000+ square feet of commercial space within the building will include the spa and fitness center, meeting space, restaurants, commercial kitchens and banquet facilities.  Telluride Ski & golf will also assume operation of the See Forever condominium association and rental unit management program. See Forever is located next to the Peaks and consists of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom cabins and condos. This will be the second hotel deal for the resort, having purchased the Inn at Lost Creek in April of 2013. In two years of owning the property, the Inn at Lost Creek has won several awards, including the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 and 2015 and the “Best Resorts in the World” award from Booking.com in 2015.

Making this deal will allow Telluride Ski & golf to elevate the overall guest experience at the Peaks, while leveraging existing resort amenities. This deal is integral to the conference facilities in Mountain Village. Along with other hotel properties in Mountain Village, the Peaks is instrumental to the success of the Telluride Conference Center, and this will allow conference center sales to book larger events with high-end accommodations.
