A List of Summer Air Travel Options to Big Sky
It’s getting easier to come and go from Big Sky, Montana, which is good news for residents as well as those who consider Montana their home away from home. The newly renovated Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport reported a 9.3 percent increase in passengers in 2014 and is fast becoming the busiest airport in Montana.
This summer, the opening of a brand-new I-90 interchange will make the airport that connects tourists and locals alike to Big Sky country even more accessible to busy travelers.
In recent years, the Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the airport to bring more direct flights to Big Sky, Yellowstone and Bozeman visitors and residents. Their efforts have resulted in expanded service to New York-LaGuardia and New York-Newark airports as well as weekly nonstop service to George Bush International Airport in Houston, TX. Airport officials say they are working on adding a direct flight to Dallas, Fort Worth, as well as increase the number of nonstop flights from Bozeman to popular destinations.
