A new flight gives clients
more time in the snow.
Horizon Air has announced daily commercial flights to Mammoth Lakes, Calif., from LAX. The new service, which will commence on Dec. 18, will cut the five-hour drive time from Los Angeles to just one hour in the air.
“The addition of commercial air service to Mammoth represents a big step toward realizing our shared vision to become a destination resort community,” said Rusty Gregory, CEO of Mammoth Mountain.
The new service is expected to boost tourism to the Mammoth area by facilitating inbound travel from a wide variety of national and international airlines that fly into LAX. In addition, Mammoth regulars will gain an easier way to travel, with connections to dozens of destinations coast to coast.
Daily service will run from Dec. 18 to April 12, 2009. The one-hour-and-five-minute flight departs Los Angeles International Airport
(LAX) daily at 2:20 p.m. and arrives at Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH) at 3:25 p.m. The return flight leaves Mammoth at 4:05 p.m. and arrives at LAX at 5:10 p.m.
Just 15 minutes from the Mammoth Yosemite Airport, Mammoth Mountain currently hosts more than 1.1 million skiers and snowboarders per year, making it the third most visited mountain resort in the country. Other winter activities around Mammoth include cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and dogsledding.
