Come Fly With Us: Telluride Now Has Jet Service

Added: Jul 09, 2019
Category: Explore Colorado

Good news for travelers who want to get to their favorite place in the world faster: For the first time in its history, the Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) will offer commercial flights into Telluride.

Starting May 15, Denver Air Connection's relationship with United Airlines will launch daily flights from Denver, allowing residents and visitors a comfortable ride on a 30-seat Dornier 328JET and landing only five miles west of Telluride's business district (or 10 minutes away from the village and slopes.)

Although TEX has long provided commercial turboprop service, the Denver flights will be the first operated on a jet. Currently, the only way to get to Telluride is through the two closest airports, TEX and the Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ).

"Jet service from DEN to TEX greatly improves accessibility and convenience," said Telluride Mayor Sean Murphy in an article from "It is a game-changer that enhances Telluride's global profile."

The summer months are Telluride's busiest. Known as the "Festival Capital," it literally has an event for every type of art, outdoor, music, film, food, wine and wellness person out there. The new jet service is an incentive for travelers from all over the world who want an easier way to get here as soon as possible to experience it.

Here's a preview of what to put on your calendar for the summer:

June: The Telluride WOW (Weekend of Wellness), Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride Wine Festival, Telluride Yoga

July: The Telluride Plein Air Festival, The Ride Festival, The Telluride Art & Architecture Weekend, The Telluride Americana Festival, Bow Wow Film Festival, Big Mountain Enduro Telluride

August: Telluride Chamber Music Festival, Telluride Jazz Festival, Telluride Mushroom Festival, Telluride Reserve (Food & Wine) and Telluride Film Festival

Learn more about each festival.

For those who want private jet service, Mountain Aviation is also offering flights to TEX. Travelers can book now through United or Denver Air Connection for travel from May 15.
