COS AirportColorado Springs Airport
Colorado Springs Airport is Colorado's small airport. This might seem like an unusual thing to say, but not when you consider that a small airport has small lines, small waits, and small walks to departure gates. Being small means we're friendly and focused on being big on your convenience, comfort and safety. If you want to fly again but feel unsure, start your next trip with COS and discover that in Colorado Springs small also means big options for direct flights and one-stop connections. COS also offers five major carriers, now including Southwest Airlines. There's more to love at Colorado's small airport.
