Allegiant Air Lands in Montrose with Service from Phoenix and San Francisco


Thanks to a deal the Telluride Montrose Regional Air Organization (TMRAO) negotiated with Allegiant Air, the slopes and Main Street should be bustling with an abundance of guests from the San Francisco Bay area and Phoenix this winter.

Starting with regular biweekly flights December 15, Allegiant will fly direct between Montrose (MTJ) and
Oakland International Airport (OAK) and Phoenix/Mesa Airport (IWA) at a greatly reduced rate. Prior to Allegiant service, average round trip fares from the San Francisco Bay area and Phoenix ranged between $400 to $600 to the region. This winter, Allegiant will offer an introductory one-way fare from Oakland from as low as $113 ($226 round-trip) and from Phoenix starting as low as $83 one-way ($166 round trip)*base fare not including bags, reserved seats or other extras.

“The TMRAO has been researching and pursuing a low cost carrier for more than a year. Allegiant offers competitive pricing for both visitors and locals,” said Scott Stewart, TMRAO Executive Director. “These new flights add an additional 10,000 seats to this winter’s air service and will have a very positive economic impact on the region’s economy.”

Did You Know?
Many people ask why we have to pay the airlines to fly into the region. Without a revenue guarantee, commercial airlines would not fly into the area at the level necessary to sustain our tourism-based economy. The Colorado Department of Transportation estimates the total economic activity impact to the region from air service to the Montrose and Telluride airports is more than $470 million annually.
