  • Each airplane seat is a window seat with unobstructed views
  • View remote parts of the Grand Canyon that few visitors get to see

On the round-trip flight from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon, your pilot flies at an altitude perfect for sightseeing. From the air, you have a clear view of the red rock canyons of Sedona, the rugged cactus-covered Tonto National Forest, and the Painted Desert’s multicolored formations.
Upgrade to the day-long ground tour option to experience a landing in Grand Canyon National Park and a Jeep tour of the rim. Here you stroll through the historic Grand Canyon Village and gaze into the the Grand Canyon from one of the rim’s many overlooks. You also enjoy lunch in the park before heading back to the Grand Canyon Airport for the flight back to Phoenix.
