Grand Canyon National Park (GCN) Airport
Grand Canyon National Park GCN Airport Overview
Grand Canyon National Park Airport GCN is owned & operated by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), and is Arizona's third-busiest airport.
The Airport is located in Tusayan, which is a CDP in the unincorporated County of Coconino - 2 miles from the Park entrance, or seven miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
While the Airport offers commercial flights, at present it is primarily used for scenic tours & charter flights. However, the yearly passenger count (enplanement & deplanement) amounts to approximately 550,000 passengers, and the Airport averages about 275 air carrier operations a day - most of which are air taxi operations. Vision Airlines is presently the only commercial airline serving the airport to/fr Las Vegas, NV. Two other Nevada flights are currently available from two regational airlines: from Boulder City the Grand Canyon, and from Henderson the Maverick airlines.
While the current passenger terminal offers basic services, a new terminal - which is presently undergoing environmental assessment - is to replace the present terminal within 'the next 3-5 years'. With the new terminal, the Airport will be able to attract more commercial airlines offering flights from/to around the country.
