Taos Air will restart its jet service offering nonstop flights to and from Austin–Bergstrom International, Dallas Love Field, Hawthorne Municipal Airport in Los Angeles, and McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad.

Service resumes July 1, 2021.

In addition to complimentary shuttle ground shuttle service between the airport and Taos Ski Valley’s award-winning hotel, The Blake at Taos Ski Valley, Taos Air travelers will have abundant activities once they arrive in the ski valley, including:

  • The new Via Ferrata, situated at 11,500 feet in the sub-alpine ecosystem of Kachina Peak, features beginner through advanced climbing route challenges, a 100-foot skybridge, and a double-cable catwalk. Novice climbers can experience the thrill of cabled mountain travel under the supervision of a guide, and progress to vertical terrain with spectacular views of the Rio Hondo and Wheeler Peak Wilderness.
  • The Green Chile Flow Trail is a lift-service mountain bike trail. From the top of Lift 4 all the way to the bottom of the Kachina Basin, the Green Chile flow track is 3.5 miles of buttery banked turns, amazing scenery, and fun for the whole family.
  • The new Blue Corn Trail will further expand the resort’s intermediate mountain bike experience and will gradually expand throughout the summer and fall as the build-out is completed.
  • The newly renovated Williams Lake Trail is a wooded 3.7-mile intermediate trail culminating at a picturesque lake bordered by stunning mountain vistas or at the summit of Wheeler Peak, the highest mountain in New Mexico.
  • Scenic chair-lift rides allow riders to breathe in the cool, clear mountain air while enjoying spectacular alpine scenery of the Kachina Basin.

Summer service will consist of twice weekly service from each city to Taos between July 1 through September 27. Taos Air will also offer service for the winter 2021-22 ski season; the booking window will open up later this summer.

The Town of Taos today announced that the Taos Regional Airport will begin direct charter flight service to and from Austin International and Dallas-Love Field airports beginning December 20. The air service will be known as Taos Air and will be comparably priced to traditional commercial airlines.

The Taos Air launch follows the Taos Regional Airport’s opening of its new crosswinds runway last August. The milestone event was the result of a thirty-year, $24,000,000 development process, in conjunction with the NM Department of Transportation’s Aviation Division and the FAA.

“With the new runway in place, we are committed to positioning the Taos Regional Airport as an economic driver for Taos County and Northern New Mexico,” said Daniel Barrone, Mayor, Town of Taos. “To that end, we are working with the state and our regional partners to develop and fund year-round, long-term air service. Improved accessibility to the area will provide opportunities to diversify the local and regional economy. Initiating seasonal air service with Taos Air is the first exciting step on that journey.”

One stakeholder working with the Town of Taos to bring the new Taos Air charter service to the airport is Taos Ski Valley, Inc., which purchased a 30-passenger jet and entered into a management agreement with Ultimate Jet Charters to operate the new Taos Air service in and out of Taos Regional Airport.

“We’re supportive of the Town’s vision for the airport as a regional economic driver and premier tourist destination,” said David Norden, CEO of Taos Ski Valley, Inc. “Taos Air will now offer the closest, fastest and easiest route to the Rockies from Texas, a thrilling development for skiers, snowboarders and outdoor enthusiasts from that region.”

Starting December 20 and continuing through the end of March, Taos Air will begin direct charter flight service between Taos Regional Airport (TSM) and Austin International (AUS) and Dallas-Love Field (DAL) airports. Winter service will consist of one flight to and from each destination every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday or holiday Monday, for a total of six round trips per week.
