TELLURIDE, Colo., Dec. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As many of us are dreading the Holiday travel season that is upon us, the newly launched Telluride Air Club aims to transform traditional charter flight operations into the Telluride Regional Airport.
Telluride is a world renowned resort town and ski destination located in south-west Colorado. Nestled at the end of a box-canyon, there is only one road in and only one road out of Telluride. The Telluride Regional Airport, approximately 3-miles from Telluride-proper, currently does not offer commercial flight service. Many regard Telluride's remote location as both its blessing and its curse.
The Telluride Air Club has a membership format that is aimed at offering the safety, reliability and luxury of private jet service at a fraction of customary costs. With a membership, Air Club affiliates are offered discounted pricing on key routes between Telluride and Texas and Telluride and Denver. Beginning with these four key routes, the Telluride Air Club is looking to expand over time with subsequent routes to additional key markets, such as Phoenix and Los Angeles.
In addition, the Telluride Air Club offers members a variety of perks, including: a virtual club house, discount rates on customer charter and perhaps most importantly, the opportunity to aggregate travel with other members that have a similar itinerary. Such ride sharing reduces the cost of a Telluride Air Club flight even more significantly.
As expressed by Michael Martelon, President & CEO of the Telluride Tourism Board, "Telluride is quite simply a place that, if you've been, it's hard to resist returning, again and again. If you're lucky enough to live here, you're normally longing to get back. The Telluride Air Club, operated by Mountain Aviation, is a concept that allows charter air customers to do just that – it's a win-win for the destination and those looking for the most direct access from point A to our community, and vice versa."
So bring your pets, bring your skis and forget the TSA lines. Flying directly into the Telluride Regional Airport, the Telluride Air Club will turn your travels into a comfortable and relaxing experience allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the Telluride area and maximize your 'Telluride Time'.
