Updated 7/27/2020: We have had several announcements over the last few months from the airlines that service Western Montana. Beginning in March 2021, Alaska Airlines will offer three new daily nonstop flights to Missoula Montana from San Diego (SAN), San Francisco (SFA) and San Jose (SJC) California. These additions join its daily nonstop from Los Angeles (LAX) to Missoula International (MSO) along with larger aircraft offering more seats on the daily Alaska Airlines route from Seattle’s SeaTac (SEA) to (MSO). Getting to Montana has never been easier. With the increase in passenger demand for the treasure state and some of the larger airlines now offering direct-flight access into Western Montana as a travel destination from their main hubs, the time is right to visit and see for yourself why they call it Big Sky Country.
Western Montana’s Glacier Country offers ease of accessibility via two bustling regional airports, Glacier Park International (FCA), located in Kalispell, and Missoula International (MSO), located in Missoula. Whether you are a meeting planner looking for a relatively undiscovered mountain destination or an association needing convention space near an international airport, we’ve got you covered in Missoula, Kalispell and Whitefish. For tour operators with clients who have Glacier National Park on their bucket list, cut your clients’ time on a motor coach and consider flying into one of our regional airports before jumping on a coach to see the sites.
Six major airlines (United, Delta, Alaska, American, Allegiant and Frontier) provide service between these airports, with a combined 15 nonstop flights (some seasonal) to major cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Oakland, Phoenix/Mesa, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle, offering flight schedules that make planning your next conference or tour in Western Montana’s Glacier Country a breeze.
If attendees or clients are not located in one of these direct flight markets, not to worry; it’s a short flight from most hubs on these major airlines. To learn how simple it is to get to Western Montana, find out more.
