About Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines


It was in 1927 that Scenic Airlines charted the first airplane tour over one of the Seven Wonders of the World: the Grand Canyon. Since then, the standard has been set for aerial sightseeing and tour operation. Scenic has earned its fame around the world for its performance in airborne touring over the Grand Canyon from both Las Vegas and from the National Park itself. Since that first flight 50 years ago we have been honored to transport over 10 million more sightseers across the canyon, which makes Scenic the largest and most experienced aerial tour operator in the world. Approximately 300,000 passengers choose Scenic each year for their sightseeing experience, and we are proud to know that our name has become internationally synonymous with travel to the Grand Canyon.
