Colorado Springs Airport

Colorado Springs Municipal Airport (COS)


A small airport located nine miles (16km) southeast of central Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Municipal Airport offers limited service to twenty US cities, depending on the season, including Las Vegas, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, and Denver.

A few shops and restaurants, and a children's play area, make up the bulk of the entertainment options; however the airport's modest facilities are well-maintained and the staff is efficient and helpful, making Colorado Springs Municipal Airport a viable alternative to the bustle of Denver's much larger airport.
