The new state-of-the-art St. George Municipal Airport (SGU) is officially replacing the former airport of St. George, Utah. Expanded nearly five times in size, SGU will now support the growing demand for interstate travel to the area and can accommodate both jet aircraft 737s and Airbus 319s.

SkyWest Airlines will serve the new airport, and passengers can connect to hundreds of destinations through Delta’s major western hub at Salt Lake International Airport. In March, SGU will introduce service from Los Angeles through United Express, and the new airport also intends to accommodate other carriers from additional destinations.

Unlike the old airport, SGU is prepared for growth, equipped with both an expandable terminal and runway. It is also surrounded by a large portion of developable land.

Additionally, SGU will provide access to many of Utah’s national and state parks, such as Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park.
