Grand Canyon National Park Airport GCN
- located in orthern Arizona and served by Highwway 64 - is owned & operated by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), and is Arizona's third-busiest airport.
The Airport is in the small Tusayan community in the unincorporated County of Coconino - 2 miles from the Park entrance, or seven miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Grand Canyon Airlines owns & operates the passenger terminal & museum,
maintenance hangar & fuel farm facility. Its site offers detailed driving time & directions from seven areas to the Airport - open: www.grandcanyonairlines.com/about/our-location.
NOTE: While Houston, Las Vegas & Tuscon Airports would be the closest Airports - currently there are no commercial flights directly to The Grand Canyons. Presently the Airport primarily used for air taxis, scenic tours & charter flights by small aircraft & helicopters. The yearly passenger count (enplanement & deplanement) is about 0.3M.
While the terminal is old and plans for a new terminal have been scraped due to lenghty requirements for environmental assessment - it was decided to give the old terminal a 'minor upgrade' instead. (The cabin-style terminal has a bronze eagle outside.)
