Page is in the Northern part of the Grand Canyon State, located near the Glen Canyon Dam, nestled along the southern shores of Lake Powell.
The remote town is a scenic destination for those drawn to the Southwest, resplendent in russet red buttes and mesas, crystal-clear cobalt skies and mile after mile of Lake Powell’s vast shoreline.
Page’s isolation has ensured that the natural surroundings stay pristine; while its remoteness is one of its main features, it can be somewhat challenging for airline travelers.
Page has a small airport, the Page Municipal Airport. This tiny local airport is served by one regional airline, Contour Airlines.
Contour offers limited service throughout the United States, servicing select cities in California, Arizona, Missouri, and West Virginia, as well as Baltimore, Las Vegas, Charlotte, NC, Macon, GA, and Tupelo, MI.
Their main hub airport is McCarran International Airport, located in Las Vegas, NV.
Contour offers flights into Page Municipal Airport throughout the year; they offer flights from select airports only and do not partner with any major airline carriers for connecting flights outside of their limited flight region.
Consequently, flight lengths vary greatly and may require booking separate flights to cities Contour flies in and out of if Contour service is not available.
The shortest flights can be found from Phoenix and Las Vegas, which both take just over an hour. These are easily the shortest flight times; most flight lengths average well over 25 hours and require at least two connecting flights and often a layover in McCarran International Airport.
Flight lengths in excess of 30 hours are not uncommon, but travelers outside of Contour’s route can save time by flying into Phoenix or Las Vegas.
The only nonstop flights to Page Municipal Airport are available from Las Vegas and Phoenix.
Page Municipal Airport is just five minutes from the heart of Page.
The airport features an onsite Avis Car Rental kiosk for easy car rentals and returns.
Page is an outdoor paradise for hikers, photographers, water sports and fishing enthusiasts.
From the fishing, wake and paddleboarding, kayaking, water skiing and boat tours of Lake Powell to the hiking the majestic vistas of Glen Canyon, Page is packed with outdoor adventures.
Hiking aficionados love Page’s many natural wonders, including Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. Horseshoe Bend features one of Glen Canyon National Recreational Area’s most breathtaking vistas. At 4,200 above sea level, it offers quite a view—the Colorado River is just 1,000 feet below the vista, meandering through the hematite, platinum and garnet-rich rock walls.
Antelope Canyon features giant, winding rock walls, rich in multihued, naturally-carved sandstone. The slot canyon’s walls tower 100’ above the Colorado River, cascading beams of light throughout the wave-like rock formations. Guided tours are required to explore the area, with ample opportunities for taking photos.
The Great Basin Desert is packed with equally scenic, expansive views of sandy wilderness, dotted with cacti and regional succulents. Page is also 20 miles from the world-famous Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, extending majestically into Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park.
To fully comprehend the area’s unique history, including Navajo nation, a trip to Page’s Powell Museum is an absolute must. Sanderson’s Into the Grand is another local must-see; this combination restaurant, river rafting exhibit and Navajo cultural center is a leading area destination.
Page also features unique Southwestern and Navajo art, jewelry and collectibles, casual eateries and the Dam Plaza, a contemporary shopping center featuring clothing and souvenirs, a sushi restaurant, a popular bar and grill serving up the coldest beer in Page and a European-style coffee house that turns into a wine and tapas bar every night.
Passports are not necessary for any flights within the United States. U.S. citizens only need a photo ID, typically a state-issued driver’s license, to board commercial flights.
