Telluride Airport Runway Improvement Project!

Telluride Airport Runway Improvement Project!
Posted by Jared on 29 April 2009

While scheduled air service and general aviation flights are on hold during runway construction, Telluride Regional Airport is open for business. Yes, you can get there from here … and here from there!  The runway will be closed from April 7 to November 2, 2009. Ground transportation and helicopter service will remain available.

When the runway reopens, our safe airport will be even safer plus passengers and pilots will have a smoother and flatter surface. There will still be some work around the airport through December 2010, however the airport will not be closed. By late Fall 2010, some larger aircraft with greater passenger capacities, such as the Bombardier Q400, will be able to service the Telluride airport!

Getting to and from Telluride will be even easier once the runway and airport modernization are completed. In the meantime, enjoy the beauty of southwestern Colorado as you use some of the transportation options that are available over the summer and fall.

In the meantime, you can fly into Montrose Airport (MTJ) and take a shuttle or reserve a rental car to get to Telluride.  It takes approximately 1 hour from Montrose Airport to the town of Telluride.  Great Lakes Airlines flights from Denver will be landing in Cortez (CEZ) Airport and you can take a shuttle or rent a car from there as well.  It takes approximately 2 hours from Cortez Airport to the town of Telluride.
