Denver International Airport, known to locals as DIA (although the airport code is DEN), 23 mi northeast of downtown Denver, is the primary commercial passenger airport serving north central Colorado. Allegiant Air connects Fort Collins and Las Vegas with scheduled service to the Fort Collins/Loveland Airport (FNL). Boulder and Granby have municipal airports but no commercial service.
The Denver Airport's Ground Transportation Information Center assists visitors with car rentals, door-to-door shuttles, public transportation, wheelchair services, charter buses, and limousine services. Boulder is approximately 45 mi (45 minutes–1 hour) from DIA; Granby approximately 110 mi (a little more than 2 hours); Fort Collins approximately 80 mi (1¼–1½ hours); and Estes Park approximately 80 mi (about two hours).
Estes Park Shuttle (reservations essential) serves Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park from Denver, Denver International Airport, and Boulder. Super Shuttle serves Denver and Boulder, and Shamrock Airport Shuttle serves Fort Collins. Home James serves Granby, Grand Lake, and the guest ranches of Grand County.
