All passengers must present one valid government-issued form of identification.
Does the airline provide roundtrip shuttle service?
From the Las Vegas area, Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines provides complimentary shuttle service to and from most major hotels on the main part of the Strip, which encompasses the area between the Stratosphere and Mandalay Bay. We also pick up at most major hotels in the Downtown area. If you're staying on or near the Strip and we do not pick up at your particular hotel, we would attempt to pick you up at hotel closest to where you're staying. At the South Rim, we do not provide airport shuttle service as many area hotels are within 10 minutes' driving time. Some hotels in Tusayan offer airport shuttle service. Inside the park, taxi service is available 24 hours a day with prior arrangement. The fare from the park to Grand Canyon National Park Airport is approximately $5/person each way.
