COS AirportColorado Springs Airport
There are two major airports in Colorado. We're the small one. Being small means we can deliver a unique experience that big airports typically can't, such as easy parking, small lines, small waits, and small walks to gates. We're here to support the community, connect people, reduce stress, and make the time people spend in the airport more enjoyable. We want to be people's first choice for flying in and out of Colorado. We're here to make everything easy and friendly and to give people a reason to say "I love my small airport."
