When traveling to the Colorado Springs area, the Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is a great option for easy access, shorter wait times, cheaper parking and lower cost travel.
The 275,000 square-foot municipal airport is owned by the City of Colorado Springs and construction was completed in 1994. Because of various updates over the years and a supportive local community, the airport remains very competitive in airfare rates, parking fees, and airport concessions. The airport now has direct flights to 17 different destinations on their 6 carriers.
The 12 gates and numerous concession and gift shops support hundreds of thousands of passengers every year, nearly 650,000 in 2016. Airline carriers include Alaska, Allegiant, American, Delta, Frontier, and United. No matter which airline you choose to fly, your gate is just a short walk from check-in and airport security. Plus, with services like Colorado Springs Lyft and Uber, even getting to and from the airport is efficient and affordable.
Next time you travel to Colorado Springs, check COS for flight schedules and direct access to our great city. Although it’s the second busiest commercial airport in the state of Colorado, we think you’ll find the slower pace and room to relax is anything but stressful.
