Since 1967, when Scenic Airlines flew the first airborne tour over one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon, Scenic has set the standard for aerial sightseeing tour operators. Today, Scenic Airlines is famous all over the world for our Grand Canyon airplane tours and many other tours from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon to the great National Parks of the United States. We are the largest and most experienced aerial tour operator in the world. Over 10 million customers have visited the Grand Canyon and other National Parks with Scenic Airlines on Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas since that first flight. Each year, we carry approximately 300,000 passengers (600,000 enplanements) on sightseeing tours alone.

No wonder our name has become synonymous with travel to the Grand Canyon and National Parks!
