Directions to Moab, Utah

Choose a direct flight to Moab's Canyonlands Field Airport (CNY) and grab a shuttle or rental car to town (20 minutes). Or arrive at one of several international airports within a 500-mile radius by driving or taking a shuttle.

OPTION A - Direct (connecting) Flight to Moab, Utah:

Canyonlands Field Airport is the official name of Moab Airport. Direct flights to Moab Canyonlands Field Airport (CNY) from Phoenix (PHX) are available through Contour Air.
