What you’ll learn in this video: Where the closest airport to the Grand Canyon is Why you probably won’t fly there Why you’ll probably fly into an airport much further away and be happy about it How the airport you choose will influence your Grand Canyon vacation plans Where to find what YOU want to know: 1:30 – So close and yet so far…The nearest airport to Grand Canyon National Park is Flagstaff/Pulliam (FLG), 90 minutes from the South Rim. But in order to save a few hours of drive time, you’ll have to spend a bit more money and/or endure a few inconveniences. 2:30 – So far and yet so close… Even though they’re 5 hours away from Grand Canyon South Rim, flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor (PHX) or Las Vegas McCarran (LAS) will ultimately save you money, AND open up even more options for getting the most out of your Grand Canyon vacation. 2:42 – Viva Las Vegas! Fly into Las Vegas McCarran (LAS) and you’ll find great deals on flights (and lots of them); cool hotels, ease of access to Zion, Lake Powell and Bryce Canyon; and if you’ve never been to Vegas before, now you have another reason to look forward to your trip! 3:09 – Phoenix (PHX) = Scenic… The drive from Phoenix to Grand Canyon trumps the Vegas to Canyon drive in terms of scenery, plus makes it easy to add incredible Sedona Arizona to your itinerary.
