Grand Canyon Airlines is My #1 Choice
Do the Canyon without breaking the bank. These guys deliver the most value for the money!
Grand Canyon Airlines offers some of the best airplane tours on the market. Flights depart Las Vegas, NV, Grand Canyon Airport, located in Tusayan, the town just outside the South Rim entrance to the Park, and Page, AZ, the starting point for Lake Powell and Monument Valley tours. Las Vegas airplane tours fly to the West Rim/Grand Canyon Skywalk (Indian Adventure with Skywalk) and to the South Rim (Grand Canyon Deluxe) Flights out of Grand Canyon Airport fly only the South Rim route (Grand Discovery Air Tour). If you are feeling really adventurous, the airline offers a number of great upgrade bundles, including helicopter flights, Skywalk tickets, and river rafting trips. The company's product offerings are phenomenal and are crafted to give you a quality Canyon experience.
Safety is Job #1...
Grand Canyon Airlines' safety record is impeccable. Two officers - a Captain and a First Officer - man each flight. These are elite pilots who must pass the company's rigorous pre-hire requirements as well the National Park's. Communication and avionics packages are state-of-the-art and include the latest weather radar equipment and GPS navigation systems, among other things. Planes receive daily maintenance and are inspected from "nose to tail" in a 10,000-square-foot hanger and maintenance facility. In addition, tough federal rules and regulations about tour routes, aircraft altitudes, and training requirements make the airspace over the Canyon one of the safest in the United States. This, combined with Grand Canyon Airlines own corporate efforts, ensures that these air tours safe for everyone.
The Ultimate Sightseeing Aircraft
Grand Canyon Airlines uses only Vistaliner aircraft, a plane customized specifically for air tours. The plane comfortably holds up to 17 passengers. Seats are plush (there's plenty of leg room) and include an adapter jack outlet that lets you plug in your digital video camera and capture the tour narration, which is available in Spanish, Japanese, German, Italian, French, Dutch, English, and Korean. Headsets are available, too. High placement of the wings plus oversized, un-tinted windows combine to give you incredible panoramic views. Cabins are climate controlled and essential to making your flight enjoyable during summer and winter months. Turbine engines instead of piston engines power the Vistaliner, which results in a quieter ride. Further, the airline has added a fourth blade to the propeller and has reduced exterior noise by an additional 66 percent!
The Customer Comes First...
The focus is always on the customer at Grand Canyon Airlines. Las Vegas flights include complimentary hotel pick up and drop off, a great perk after you've spent a day sightseeing. Check-in can be done toll free or via live chat on the company's easy-to-use website. Refunds and rescheduling is a snap and hassle-free (I should know - I've had to reschedule multiple times and I've never had issues). The terminals the company uses (Las Vegas flights depart from nearby Boulder City; South Rim flights out of the company's private terminal) are clean, organized, and designed to get you up in the air as quickly and efficiently as possible. The airline is also on Twitter and has a Facebook page, making it even easier to contact the company regarding your reservation, check-in times, weather conditions, and more.
Book Online & Save Up to 35%
This airline consistently over-delivers. I feel I get my money's worth every time I fly. So do my family members, guests, and clients. The price is right, but it gets even better if you book online using the company's secure website. I've netted savings of up to 35 percent! If you want to pay more, feel free to call an agent, or, worse, book at the terminal or in your Las Vegas hotel. But why would you? Booking online is easy. The same thing you can do over the phone (e.g. group tours, air/ground combos, and more) for a premium can be easily on the website. Plus you can save up to 40 percent!
Based on overall customer satisfaction, safety, tour options, and value, Grand Canyon Airlines easily is my #1 choice for Grand Canyon West Rim and South Rim tours from Las Vegas, Tusayan, AZ (South Rim gate), and Page, AZ. Enjoy the flight!
More Praise for Grand Canyon Airlines...
I got nominated to organize the family re-union. I instantly picked Las Vegas. My sister thought I was nuts, until I told her we were all going to fly to the Grand Canyon. What's more, I told her we could do it in a day and be back at the blackjack tables by early evening. Sold. The folks at the airline gave us exceptional customer service and trip was absolute perfection. I'm the family hero...for now.

I love traveling in the U.S. Especially the mountains and the desert. I'd read a bunch of coffee-table books on the Grand Canyon, and I thought I had a good mental image of the place. Not! Pictures are pictures. Nothing beats being there. Or flying there, as was the case. Our pilot was an excellent guide, and positioned our aircraft over parts of the Canyon that are only viewed by plane. Now that's special. I felt like I was Indiana Jones, but in a Cessna. Two thumbs up for this tour!

Is there a better way to see the Grand Canyon? Tell me, because our plane ride was incredible. Take off was thrilling. You jet down the runway, bank, then fly over the lip of the South Rim and there you are, hovering over the Gorge. Talk about knowing your place in the universe. Park Rangers tell you that the Canyon is 270 miles or so long and when you're up in the air it's true. You wouldn't know this if you are on foot. I now feel like I can say I've "seen" the Grand Canyon.

I'm head of incentive travel at a software company. My team did the impossible last year and boosted sales by 30 percent. Incredible, and deserving of a trip that reflected their achievements, so I included a flight to the Grand Canyon's South Rim in our Las Vegas itinerary. Bus trip was too long. Helicopter divided the group. The vistaliner kept us all together. Plus it got us there faster and in more comfort. The trip was absolutely fantastic. Now I have all my reps asking me to include it in this year's compensation package!
