  • Where else are you planning to go on your trip?  Are you including trips to other attractions like Antelope Canyon or the Petrified Forest National Park? These are places you can easily add to your Southwest itinerary and may change which airport makes the most sense to fly to/ from.  
  • When are you going?  Are you traveling during the summer months? Or traveling there in winter? Some airports offer more limited flights during the winter months.  
  • Where are you staying? How far is your accommodation from the airport? You may prefer to find an airport closer to where you’re staying.
