Flying into Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) is often the most convenient but also often the most expensive way to get to Telluride which is serviced by Frontier and United Airlines. Most flights will have a layover in Denver. Another good (and often cheaper) option is to fly into Montrose (MTJ) from eight major cities across the United States! Once you arrive at the airport, it's a 66-mile drive to the town of Telluride. Many Telluride hotels provide free shuttle services. There are several companies that also provide shuttles.
The least expensive option (especially for large groups) can be to fly into Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT) and then shuttle to Telluride and then back from Moab. There are five different carriers that service Grand Junction.
