Montrose Regional Airport (IATA: MTJ, ICAO: KMTJ) is a non-towered public airport on the northwest side of Montrose, in zip code 81401 in the southwest corner of Colorado. Its two runways are at elevation 5,759 feet (1,755 m).
Monarch Airlines started flying to Montrose in the 1940s, but we don't know which airport. Successor Frontier Airlines flew to the present airport since the 1950s; the first jets were Frontier 737s in 1982.
Montrose Regional Airport was dedicated June 25, 1988, with Chuck Yeager cutting the ribbon. Runway 17/35 was built during the 1990s.
The airport is seasonal-- many flights operate from MTJ only during the winter. It is the nearest jet airport to ski areas around Telluride.
