Daily Direct Flights From PHX to TEX
PHX-TEX flights are back, and for the first time on a jet! This summer, fly Denver Air daily from Phoenix (PHX) to Telluride (TEX), just 10 minutes away from Mountain Village, downtown Telluride, and the Resort.
Denver Air is known for its phenomenal customer service, and the Dornier 328 Jet offers a comfortable 30-seat configuration with full in-flight services. Flight time from PHX-TEX is just 70 minutes in the air. Daily flights are available now to September 5, 2022.
“The flights from PHX to TEX hands-down offer Phoenicians the quickest and easiest way to get to major North American skiing,” – said Colorado Flights CEO Matt Skinner. – “We have listened to consistent requests from both Valley and Telluride residents over the last several years to put these flights back into TEX, and are thrilled to have found an answer with the first-ever jet service.”
Land at the Rockies’ Most Convenient Airport
“We welcome Denver Air Connection to Sky Harbor, and we are grateful for the opportunity to provide our residents with convenient service to Telluride while allowing Colorado residents great access to the Phoenix area.” – Chad Makovsky, Phoenix Director of Aviation Services.
“Denver Air Connection is proud to operate the world’s only scheduled jet service in and out of the Telluride Regional Airport, and we are grateful for the trust and support our partner, Colorado Flights, puts in us,” said Cliff Honeycutt, President of Denver Air Connection. “When we began service from Denver to Telluride, there was already a shared vision to expand service and options for travelers to Telluride. Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport has been most welcoming, and we look forward to beginning daily round trips in December.”
About Telluride, Colorado
Nestled within Southwest Colorado’s dramatic San Juan Mountains, Telluride, Colorado, is known for its world-class alpine skiing, awe-inspiring landscapes and vibrant summer festival season. Telluride is served by two regional airports: Telluride (TEX), just 10 minutes from town and the slopes, and Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), a scenic 75-minute shuttle ride to the destination.
America West/US Airways successfully flew turbo-prop aircraft from PHX-TEX from 1993-2011, when those aircraft were relocated or retired. Flights then shifted to the Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) from PHX with American Airlines, which also continue to operate.
