Flights From Montana

Welcome to the last bastion of the Western Frontier, the home of glaciers, gold mines, white water rivers, and riding trails. Today, these memories of vintage America are within only a few hours of a commercial airport, as the state is home to no less than ten, seven of those being major commercial airports. There is a plethora of smaller, private airports and landing strips, as charter and commuter flights are common in the region.

The following airports can take you to almost anywhere nationally and host several major US-based carriers.

  • Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) is the busiest airport in the state, and primarily hosts national traffic.
  • Billings Logan International Airport (BIL) just behind BZN in terms of passengers moved and focused on regional and national flights.
  • Glacier Park International Airport (FCA) is convenient way to get to an isolated corner of the state and has an impressive amount of flights for its size.
  • Missoula International Airport (MSO) offers a few regular routes and doubles this traffic on a seasonal basis.
  • Great Falls International Airport (GTF) is currently home to four national US carriers with regular flights to major American cities.

If your destination is outside of the continental United States, your flight connects at a larger hub, like Chicago, Seattle, or Los Angeles.

Best Time to Book a Flight From Montana

Travel time in Montana is seasonal and is busier during the summer, although there is plenty of traffic in the winter for those that enjoy playing in the snow. Quieter times include the spring and fall when there are fewer tourists heading to places like Yellowstone and Glacier Park. Use the handy monthly search tool to browse for flights within a longer time period. Regional flight schedules stay the same, but flights to bigger cities are not offered all year, so try to plan your international flight as far in advance as possible to get the best prices and easiest connections.

Airlines that Fly From Montana

  • Delta and its subsidiaries fly from every international airport in Montana with both regular and seasonal connections throughout the US.
  • Alaska Airlines, under the name of Horizon Air flies regular and seasonal flights to Portland and Seattle.
  • United Airlines and subsidiary United Express go to Chicago, Denver, and San Francisco on a regular schedule depending on the departure airport.

What to expect when leaving Montana

The airports throughout Montana are efficient and functional, and not places for duty-free shopping or gourmet dining. Any kind of public transit to any of these airports is also very limited, where it exists at all. There are currently no direct international flights from airports in Montana, so if you are crossing any border bigger than a state line, customs or immigration paperwork takes place at your next stop.
