Getting Around

Find your way to or around Moab can be tricky, but we're here to help.

Moab is a beautiful place but getting here doesn't have to be hard. You can fly, drive or take a train. Moab has tons of things to see, but there are some big distances you'll need to travel to get there. We don't have public transportation so we highly recommend renting a car to make your life easier. Check out our helpful information below.



Moab's airport is called Canyonlands Air Field (airport code CNY). It's a smaller airport but offers flights from other major airports:

  • SkyWest/United Airlines flies from Denver (DEN) daily. Flights schedules vary with the season, check the SkyWest/United schedule.
  • Delta Airlines flies directly from Salt Lake City (SLC). Flights schedules vary with the season, check the Delta schedule.
  • Other options include flying to Salt Lake City (SLC) and renting a car for a 4-hour drive, flying to Grand Junction (GJT), renting a car for a 1.5-hour drive, or flying to Denver (DEN) and renting a car for a 5-hour drive.


Looking to explore Moab by plane? Book a scenic air tour flying over Canyonlands or Arches National Park. See the highlights in less time.

Car Rentals

Renting a Car is by far the easiest way to see all the beautiful sights of Moab. There's a vast amount of space between all the sights, that you might find it hard to see them all because you don't have a car. Taxi/Shuttle services are hit or miss depending on the time of the year.
