Grand Canyon Airport - Closest Airport to Grand Canyon

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)

Most Grand Canyon visitors fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport because it is the closest major international airport to the South Rim, the most visited part of the National Park; just over 3.5 hours' drive (231 miles). Sky Harbor is a busy airport welcoming flights and airlines from all over the world. From here, you can rent a car or even take a quick 20-minute jumper flight to Flagstaff (FLG).
231 miles to the South Rim; 3 hours 35 minutes drive from Phoenix to Grand Canyon South Rim

Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Nevada (LAS)

Flying into Las Vegas and visiting the West Rim of the Grand Canyon is quickly becoming the easiest way to see Grand Canyon's West Rim, which is the home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Mind you, this is NOT part of Grand Canyon National Park. But many helicopter tours, high-end vehicle tours, and river trips depart from Las Vegas. You can fly a commercial plane into Las Vegas from almost any city across the globe making Las Vegas increasingly more popular of a Grand Canyon hub than Arizona. McCarran offers nonstop scheduled service to Canada, Germany, Mexico, the Philippines, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and many others.
121 miles to the West Rim; 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon West
278 miles to the South Rim; 4 hours 27 minutes drive from Las Vegas to the South Rim

Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG)

Flagstaff Airport is the closest small commercial airport to Grand Canyon National Park South Rim, just a 92-minute scenic drive via three distinct routes. Fly American Airlines or United Airlines exclusively from or connecting through Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX), Denver (DEN) or Dallas - Ft. Worth (DFW) directly into Flagstaff. These flights are increasing in frequency and are worth it when it comes to extreme convenience. Flagstaff's small airport is friendly, charming, easy to navigate, simple to collect baggage, and even rent a car.

Bonus: If you happen to be flying from Phoenix, try to get a window seat on the west side of the plane (left side going to Flagstaff, right side if flying to Phoenix from Flagstaff). This seat gives you an amazing view of Sedona as the plane stays pretty low over for the 25+ minute flight and is like a Sedona air tour in its own right.
81 miles; 1 hour 32 minutes drive from Flagstaff to Grand Canyon South Rim (Main Entrance)

Prescott Ernest A. Love Field (PRC)

Prescott's central Arizona location and close driving proximity to Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon make it a logical home base for any Arizona vacation.

129 miles; 2 hours 25 minutes drive from Prescott to the South Rim
