Gateway to Utah: Salt Lake City International Airport
Utah is accessible to the world via Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Located just 5 miles northwest of downtown Salt Lake City, the airport has three terminals, five concourses and 71 gates. Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, United and US Airways and their affiliates serve Salt Lake City International Airport including 98 cities with nonstop flights. International nonstop flights include Paris, Amsterdam and multiple cities in Mexico and Canada.
In 2017, SLC served more than 23 million passengers. The airport ranks 25th busiest in the United States and 85th busiest in the world in terms of passenger numbers, yet it is consistently recognized for on-time arrivals and departures. For you, that means easy movement among gates and terminals with excellent, efficient service.
Travelers arriving at Salt Lake City International Airport have the convenient travel option of TRAX light rail out of Terminal 1. It's a 20-minute ride to City Center. There are also taxi, Uber and Lyft services to downtown.
An Airport Redevelopment Program is underway to rebuild the entire airport. The first phase of The New SLC will open in 2020 with a new parking garage, a new central terminal and new concourses to better accommodate current and future passenger traffic.
Commercial air service, charter flights, or aerial connections connect Salt Lake City to other Utah destinations, or make areas of the state more accessible to charter and private aircraft. These smaller airlines offer unique experiences often missed by visitors.
