Colorado Springs Airport

Overview

A small airport located six miles (10km) southeast of central Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Municipal Airport offers limited service to roughly a dozen US cities, including Las Vegas, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, and Denver.
