The new St George, Utah airport has been open for over a year now - much closer to Mesquite NV than McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. Most flights are to Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, but that means that you can fly anywhere with a connecting flight - good news for Canadians, too. Both Delta and United have flights operated by Skywest.
Driving to the airport from Mesquite is pretty easy - right through the Arizona gorge, and take a right just before you get to St George. The first time you go, after you get off Highway 15, it seems kind of odd, like you are heading to the middle of nowhere. Actually, you are - the airport is by itself, off in the bluffs. Beautiful scenery on the way and only about 45 minutes from Mesquite.
There is plenty of room for growth in and around the St. George Airport, which means good business opportunities in the future and a step ahead for the local economy. And yes, there will be new homes built, several subdivisions are already in the planning stages. And then .... restaurants. And then .... retail stores. And then .... maybe another golf course? Can't have too many of those - not with our winter weather. :)
Mesquite NV Airport does not have commercial flights - The opening of this airport so close to Mesquite has been a plus for some of our second home owners, many keep a car here in town for their winter visits. Even if you rent a car for a short visit, it is a lot easier and quicker to fly into St George than it is to come in from the Las Vegas airport - plan on saving about an hour of time and a lot of hassle.
Beautiful drive. No traffic. No hassle. Park right in front. What is not to like?
