Travel

Flagstaff is serviced by its own small airport (Pulliam).

However, some of you may wish to experience the beautiful landscape between Phoenix and Flagstaff by flying into Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, renting a car there, and driving uphill about 7,000 ft. in 2.5 hours (speed limit 75 mph) to Flagstaff.

Be sure to check airline fares; sometimes it costs no more to fly to Flagstaff than to Phoenix.
