Exciting news comes to Coloado Ski Country from the Southwest, as Allegiant Airlines has announced new service from Phoenix and the Bay Area into the Telluride Montrose Regional Airport this winter. Skiers and riders will be able to take advantage of low fares and non-stop flights straight to the slopes of Telluride starting in December.
The Telluride Montrose Regional Air Organization (TMRAO) put the deal together with Allegiant Air for direct bi-weekly flights from Oakland International Airport (OAK) and Phoenix-Mesa airport (IWA) to Telluride Montrose (MTJ) and at a greatly reduced rate. Prior to Allegiant service, average round-trip fares from the San Francisco Bay area and Phoenix to the region ranged between $400 and $600. This winter, Allegiant will offer an introductory one-way fare from Oakland as low as $113 ($226 round-trip) and from Phoenix starting as low as $83 one-way ($166 round-trip)*. The flights start December 15 and conclude April 3. For a complete flight schedule, visit www.allegiantair.com.
Allegiant was secured as the new airline partner via a collaborative effort and strong partnership between the TMRAO, Montrose Regional Airport and additional supplemental funding from the City of Montrose, the Town of Telluride, the Town of Mountain Village and the Telluride Ski Resort.
“Allegiant is a great fit for the region and we are thrilled to have them as our new airline partner,” said Lloyd Arnold, Director of Aviation for Montrose Regional Airport. “The community of Montrose has been very supportive of recent terminal improvements that will ensure Allegiant’s customers have a warm welcome and comfortable experience as an introduction to the hospitality of our region.”
TMRAO exists to stimulate local economic development by attracting and retaining air service to the Montrose and Telluride region. For more information on TMRAO, visit www.flytelluride-montrose.com.
