Travel Logistics:

Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport is the nearest large airport, about 100 miles south of Prescott. Plan to make shuttle arrangements coinciding with airline arrival and departure. Shuttle vans run several times daily between various locations in Prescott and Sky Harbor Airport (see below). Travel to and from the airport and Prescott is approximately 2 hours.

Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is a smaller airport in the Phoenix area which houses Allegiant, Spirit, and Frontier Airlines. There are no direct shuttles between Prescott and this airport, but students can take a shuttle between Sky Harbor and Gateway (Phoenix Gateway Direct or 855-982-2555). The shuttle between airports takes about 45 minutes.

There is also a small airfield near Prescott, Earnest A. Love Field, with direct flights to Los Angeles International Airport and Denver International Airport on Great Lakes Airlines.
