COLORADO SPRINGS AIRPORT

More than 2 million passengers pass through Colorado Springs Airport (COS) each year. The airport serves as the first impression for thousands of visitors, giving them a breathtaking view of Pikes Peak and a taste of Colorado hospitality. In addition, COS is a major catalyst in the growth and development of the Colorado Springs region, and plays a significant role in bringing new business, conventions and tourism to the area.

COMMERCIAL AIR SERVICE

Travelers can get to and from Colorado Springs with ease. COS boasts multiple carriers that offer varied routes to virtually all cities in North America and major cities worldwide. This ultimately allows the airport to provide convenient flight schedules and competitive airfares. The airport handles around 90 arrivals and departures per day and is served by five airlines. COS has non-stop service to 13 U.S. cities, as well as convenient connecting flights.

CUSTOMER CONVENIENCE

The wide array of services available to passengers and other airport users contribute to COS' well deserved user-friendly reputation. Airline ticket and car rental counters, security checkpoints, baggage claim areas and concessions are easy to find and centrally located. COS is easy to navigate - whether you're a family on the go or a road-weary business executive. The farthest gate is a walk of less than 1,000 feet from airline ticket counters or baggage carousels. At COS, more than 9,000 uncovered parking spaces are conveniently located and are easy on travelers' budgets. Parking lots are safe, clean and well-lighted, offering quick car-to-terminal shuttle service with luggage or disabled assistance from helpful, courteous staff. Unique perks for travelers include valet parking service and free wireless Internet access. COS continues to meet the changing needs of the travelers with planned facilities enhancements, including new concessions and ongoing infrastructure improvements.

FACILITIES

COS' three-level, 16-gate terminal facility opened in 1994. In this 280,000 square-foot facility, numerous skylights and large windows provide panoramic views of Pikes Peak and Colorado's Front Range. Perhaps more importantly, COS is conveniently located near I-25. The airport is within easy driving distance to various Colorado cities and tourist attractions, including 14 major ski areas. Travel time from the airport to downtown Colorado Springs is a quick 25 minutes, while Denver is a leisurely 70 minute drive north on I-25.

COS is ideally situated close to the geographic center of the United States. It also provides services and amenities that attract a wide array of general aviation aircraft. The airport is situated on 7,135 acres at an elevation of approximately 6,200 feet; 200 acres consist of general aviation development and another 427 acres have been set aside for a business park. Two parallel runways and one crosswind runway accommodate the airport's air traffic. Uncongested air and ground space, short taxi time, and a low weather-related closure/cancellation rate are why COS consistently ranks among the lowest in delays of all U.S. airports.
