New flights to Las Vegas and Denver highlight the schedule

Mammoth Lakes, Calif. (September 29, 2014) — Two new flights have been added to the Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH) lineup for the 2014/15-season. Now, both locals and visitors will have the option to fly in and out of Mammoth Lakes from Denver, Colo. (DEN) and Las Vegas, Nev. (LAS).

Offered by United Airlines, the Denver flight will run on Saturdays beginning December 20, 2014.

“With weekly service from Denver, not only do we connect to the East Coast, Midwest and South, but we add new international access as well,” said Mammoth Lakes Tourism’s Executive Director, John Urdi.

Alaska Airlines’ non-stop flight between Las Vegas and Mammoth Lakes will operate on Mondays and Thursdays beginning January 15, 2015.

“We’re thrilled to offer our customers convenient, nonstop service from Las Vegas to Mammoth Yosemite Airport,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ senior vice president of communications and external relations.

You can also count on daily flights from Los Angeles (LAX) via Alaska Airlines, and San Francisco (SFO) via United Airlines again this season. Daily flights from these cities kick offDecember 18, 2014.

To top it all off, Alaska’s flight from San Diego (SAN) also returns this season on January 8, 2015 with flights on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays and Mondays.

    A daily flight to/from Reno would provide better connectivity and be more useful for people living in the region.

    What happens when that ONE flight to Denver gets cancelled due to weather? I would hate to be in that customers shoes trying to get other flights home. It’s a nightmare waiting to happen.

      United routes them to San Francisco and puts them on one of ten flights a day to Denver.

        I think the question cancelled due to weather or wind means at the Mammoth airport. I don’t recall any United ticket counter at Mammoth airport. How many flights have been cancelled in or out of Mammoth airport due to weather and passengers have had to use some other form of transportation the reach the intended destination?

          The airlines are here because we begged and payed them. They don’t like angry customers and will try to help. TOML and Mountain should be taking care of passenger they lured to their white elephant airport. If you live here you should know not to rely on MMH flights.

        So why one flight a week to and from Denver when they can fly to SFO then to MMH. It really makes no sense and I don’t see that the flights will be full at all. As a matter of fact anyone from the East coast can fly to Vegas, LAX, San Diego and SFO and have more flight options. Seems to me Mammoth is just creating a bigger carbon footprint with this wasted flight.

          Why ridiculous investment in MMH to begin with and not Bishop? TOML and Mountain are probably fantasizing Aspen billionaire flying coach, getting stranded and marrying them. Just like Stephen King’s “Misery”.

          Denver airport is bigger than all you mention except LAX and is major hub for United. That’s why it probably works for them. They might fill empty seats with fares to SFO via MMH.

            First of all back then Bishop did not step up to the plate to build out a commercial terminal and what not to get those flights. Then I think there was a issue with DWP.

            Mammoth or the Mono county does not own the Bishop airport.

            Mammoth purchased the airport from the county as the county did not want it anymore.

            Bishop is seeking funding now for commercial fights.

            MK, my hindsight isn’t always 20/20. Bishop balked. TOML and Mountain overplayed their hand. DWP had not yet given title to airport land. Would have been good for whole region if everyone had come together to improve Bishop airport first.

    What about Phoenix?

    How about a flight to Sacramento, which would help those of us who live, spend, and promote the Eastern Sierra??? It would attract current Tahoe skiers, thus expanding MM’s reach…

      United or Amtrak/BART from Sacramento to SFO.

        Down voted for telling someone how to get to Mammoth? If from TOML you should donate to TBID to pay for more empty seats. If from Sacramento you drive hundred miles to Tahoe and can’t go that far to SFO for subsidized flight? Just have your private jet or flying unicorn bring you then.

    I agree that Reno should be offered daily. I am surprised there is no mention of Phoenix ??

    What about Seattle?

     
  7. Shine October 1, 2014 at 8:40 pm #

    How about 200% TBID and we just helicopter everyone to their front door?
