Colorado’s small airport saw 165,853 passengers travel through the terminal – a 14.1 percent increase from the same time in 2019.

Another notable increase is the number of seats in the market. The 123,187 available seats in the market nearly doubled from 2019 with a 45.9 percent increase. Due to the large increase in seats, load factors have been affected and COS saw an average 67.3 percent load factor.

With more enplanements, passengers, and seats in the market, COS is expecting a busy summer. To celebrate the return of travel this summer, and show appreciation to those who fly COS, the airport is offering 50 percent off long-term parking through July 6, extended from the original promotion dates of June 1 – June 30.
