Easily able to accomodate 1,000 passengers a day, we designed our Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines terminal with guest service in mind. This terminal is equipped with all the amenities needed to keep you comfortable while you wait to board your aircraft. A large gift shop, spacious lounge area, espresso cart and 30-minute photo processing are just a few of the comforts this terminal has to offer. There’s also a large, plate-glass viewing area, providing a 180 degree view of arriving and departing aircraft.
We conduct our tours using Twin Otter Vistaliner and Cessna Caravan aircraft. Both types of aircraft are optimum for sightseeing and are equipped with spacious cabins, climate-control and a plethora of windows to sightsee through.
Airplane tours that depart from this terminal offer stunning views of the Grand Canyon South Rim, one of the Grand Canyon’s most popular destinations. Unlike other areas of the Grand Canyon, South Rim is open year round, and each season delivers a different experience. Summer is peak season for tourism and offers the best weather, but crowds are not uncommon. Spring marks the bloom of wildflowers along the Kaibab Plateau, and the area becomes painted in reds and blues. In the fall, the abundant aspen trees turn golden yellow as their leaves change, and in the winter, you might even get to see the canyon walls lightly powdered in snow. No matter what season you plan to visit, make sure to plan your trip well in advance to avoid any complications.
The South Rim is the most developed area surrounding the Grand Canyon and offers more services than other rims. Still, if you’re planning on staying more than one day, many visitors book their lodging in nearby Williams, Flagstaff, Sedona, or Tusayan.
