Flagstaff’s Pulliam Airport is located 2mi (3km) south of the city at 6200 South Pulliam Drive. This is a small airport with service to Phoenix on US Airways Express and Los Angeles on Horizon Air/Alaska Airlines. From Phoenix Sky Harbor International you can get a connecting flight to many cities in California and the Southwest, as well as some larger ones in the Midwest and along the East Coast. From Los Angeles International you can connect to many of the same cities, as well as most International Gateways around the World.
Though some hotels in Flagstaff offer complimentary ground transportation, it is probably a better idea to rent a car. Arrange a reservation with Avis, Budget, Hertz, National or Alamo, and the agency will deliver the car to the airport.
If you would rather fly into a larger airport and then drive to Flagstaff, the closest large airport is Phoenix, 140mi (230km) away. There is also an airport at the Grand Canyon an hour north, but it does not allow rental cars and almost all traffic is chartered aircraft.
