Orbitz has worked to make booking bargain flights to Colorado as easy as possible so you can make your dream vacation a reality.

Flights to Colorado

Flights to Colorado land at one of the state's eleven primary commercial service airports or any of the seven non-primary and reliever airports. The most common airport for inbound Colorado flights is Denver International Airport. In 2005 - 2010, Denver International was voted Best Airport in North America, both for its excellent services and for its distinctive architecture, which is intended to mirror the snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Visitors can watch inbound Colorado flights taxi to gates on the ground below them from the airport's famous pedestrian bridge, which connects the terminal to Concourse A. Denver International is a major hub for United and Frontier Airlines and is the largest airport in the United States. The airport is twenty-five miles from downtown Denver. For connection to other cities, travelers can transfer to regional flights or rent a car.
