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.
Travelers planning Colorado flights will be delighted to discover that the state experiences over three hundred days of crisp air and sunshine a year. Humidity in Colorado generally hovers around an ideal 33%, and although it often snows as early as September and continues to snow for much of the year. Temperatures in lower altitude areas are not unbearably cold. Those booking flights to Colorado with the intent of staying in the mountains should pack snow gear, however, because mountain resort areas usually receive over three hundred inches of snow annually.
Getting Around Colorado

Travelers can also hire taxis, rent bicycles, or fly from city to city via one of the state's many municipal airports.
