Jackson Hole is becoming a non-stop flight reality, and getting here is getting even easier than ever.
The 2015-2016 winter season boasts 12 non-stop flight routes to Jackson Hole airport, the largest airport in the State of Wyoming. The creation of the Jackson Hole Air Improvement Resources Board, also know as JH Air, has created fight routes across the country that can access Jackson Hole quickly and conveniently.
Currently we have non-stop flights from 12 different cities including new winter flights from JFK, Seattle and Houston. All major airlines–United, Delta, American and Frontier (United Express and Skywest also support Jackson flights for United and Delta) are serving Jackson Hole offering numerous options.
The strong relationship between JH AIR and our airline partners has resulted in joint planning and collaboration leading to our additional non-stop flights. This on-going effort has produced more airline seats in and out of Jackson Hole, with an 8% increase this winter compared to last year. That combined with having non-stop flights from 12 airports makes connections easier than ever and greatly simplifies travel for all domestic as well as our international visitors.
Jackson Hole is located in Western Wyoming on the border with Idaho. Driving to Jackson can an amazing journey filled with many side adventures. You can drive through multiple national parks and National forests. Towns and cities are a little more spread out in the Rocky Mountains, which means that you will be spending a little bit more time in the car, but with no traffic. Denver Colorado takes about 8.5 hours to get to Jackson, while Salt Lake City is a bit closer taking about 5.5 hours.
A car is not absolutely necessary in the summer, but is extremely helpful. You are probably coming to Jackson to explore, so what better way to do that in your own vehicle. The START bus runs on a more limited schedule valley wide in the summer months, but the town shuttle is still available to bring you are around town.
If you are staying in Teton Village, you will inevitably travel to downtown Jackson to shop and dine. If you are staying in town, you will need transportation to and from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Both types of trips can be taken on the public bus system – START (Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit) Bus. A cheap and efficient way to travel around the valley, a one-way trip from downtown Jackson to Teton Village costs $3 per person.
