The Closest Airport To Bryce Canyon National Park

Cedar City Regional Airport (CDC)

Small trees are in the middle of hills, and below the mountain are building in Cedar City, Utah, on the opposite side

Cedar City Regional Airport is the nearest airport to Bryce Canyon with commercial flights. If you have limited travel time and want to get the most out of your Bryce Canyon experience, this is your best choice.  

The downside is that it’s a regional airport that only offers domestic flights connected to Salt Lake City via Delta Airlines. If you also want to include a visit to Salt Lake in your itinerary, you could consider a layover going there.    

It’s a small airport with only two rental car companies available, but it’s the best way to get you to Bryce Canyon if you want to minimize your driving.  From the airport, it’s less than two hours’ drive to get to Bryce National Park. 

It can be more expensive to fly into small airports like this since they don’t have budget flights, but it does save you time and will help you make the most of your trip to Bryce Canyon.
