Voted the 2007 Airport of the Year by the Arizona Department of Transportation (Aeronautics Division), the Show Low Regional Airport is the premier air transportation facility in the White Mountains. Just two miles east of downtown Show Low, the airport boasts two runways with parallel and connecting taxiways, a modern 6,400-square-foot terminal building, short- and long-term vehicle parking lots and three aircraft parking ramps. An on-site fire station provides fire and safety coverage for the airport’s users 365 days a year. A new 5,500-foot crosswind runway is planned to replace the current 3,920-foot crosswind runway.The airport offers daily scheduled commuter air service between Show Low and Phoenix seven days per week via Great Lakes Airlines. Utilizing twin-engine Beech-1900 pressurized aircraft, passengers can fly one-way between the two cities in a little under an hour versus a four-hour, 180-mile one-way driving trip. Great Lakes passengers can connect to any of the major airlines operating from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor.

Passenger bus service is also available six days a week between Show Low and Phoenix, via Payson. The service connects to any terminal at Sky Harbor Airport.

Getting around Show Low and the immediate area is not a problem. The Four Seasons Connection provides public transit service throughout the Show Low and Pinetop-Lakeside area. A second public transit system, The White Mountain Connection, provides daily service along State Highway 77 between Pinetop-Lakeside and Holbrook, the county seat, with stops in Snowflake-Taylor.
