Telluride Airport Mini Guide

Collect a Telluride Airport rental car from this regional facility in Colorado. Telluride Airport is a public airport which has the airport code TEX and it serves city of the same name. It only has one runway and the main airlines to use it are Great Lakes Airlines which flies to Denver, the capital of Colorado, and US Airways Express operated by Mesa Airlines which has seasonal flights to Phoenix in Arizona.

Telluride Airport

A rental vehicle can also be your ticket to the surrounding San Miguel County. In fact many of our customers are here to enjoy the incredible skiing opportunities of Telluride as this is the highest airport in the United States at more than nine thousand feet high. This high elevation also makes the descent quite tricky for pilots. Book early to get a low cost ski package. You get a four by four with snow chains and snow tires to tackle the slopes and the option of global positioning also. Even if you are not into skiing Colorado is a beautiful state which has many great outdoor opportunities such as hiking, cycling and white water rafting.

Telluride Airport is also useful for business travellers as it is so close to the central business district. Up until November 2009 Telluride Airport was closed for extensive renovations to the runway. More than 24 million dollars was spent on removing a dip in the runway which had proved dangerous.
