Canyonlands Field (IATA: CNYICAO: KCNYFAA LID: CNY) is a county owned, public use airport in Grand County, Utah, United States. It is located 18 nautical miles (21 mi, 33 km) northwest of the central business district of Moab, Utah.[1] The airport is mostly used for general aviation, but is served by one commercial airline. Scheduled passenger service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program.

According to Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 2,870 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008,[2] 3,982 enplanements in 2009, 2,701 in 2010,[3] 9,181 in 2011, 7,955 in 2012, and 7,048 in 2013. It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a non-primary commercial service airport (between 2,500 and 10,000 enplanements per year).[4]


Frontier Airlines provided a service from 1958 until some time between 1970 and 1975. (Probably 1972, because a route map of SkyWest Airlines dated 1974 and on their 35th anniversary website showed that they provided service from 1973-1975.) Later, Air Midwest and Salmon Air provided services to Salt Lake City International Airport.

Great Lakes Airlines began servicing the airport on January 6, 2007, with two daily flights to Denver International Airport. On December 5, 2011, Great Lakes began a daily non-stop service to Vernal, Utah.
