Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) is Montana’s busiest airport, providing service for 6 major airlines, and non-stop flights to 15 cities in the United States with connections all over the world. It is the only airport to provide year-round service for two Yellowstone National Park entrances. BZN hosts 8 major rental car agencies with offices right next to baggage claim, so you can hop straight from our airport doors to the next leg of your journey.

Please note that there is no public transit from the airport to town.
