Provo Municipal Airport serves Utah’s Provo-Orem metropolitan area and the Utah Valley. The airport is 4½ miles west of downtown Provo and 5½ miles from the Brigham Young University campus. Sundance Mountain Resort is about 22 miles northeast of the airport, a drive that takes just over 30 minutes. The heart of downtown Salt Lake City is 45 miles north of Provo Airport.
Provo airport’s TAC Air terminal building, 3421 Mike Jense Parkway, is very small, compact and capable of handling only one airline flight at a time. The waiting area at the only gate has 170 seats, about equal to the number of seats on the typical commercial aircraft serving the airport.
Amenities in the terminal for waiting passengers are limited to vending machines. There are no restaurants or retail shops in the terminal. Taxis and app-based ride services are available for arriving passengers but there are no rental car counters at the airport. Utah Transit Authority buses operate between the airport and the downtown Provo Central Station where connections are available to other bus routes and the UTA FrontRunner train going north to Orem, Salt Lake City and as far as Ogden. Buses depart Provo airport once an hour until 6 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays with a scheduled travel time of about 15 minutes to the Provo Central Station.
A new $55 million, 100,000 square-foot terminal with four gates – expandable to 10 gates – is under construction and due to open in June 2022.
Allegiant Air flights arrive and depart from facilities in the TAC Air terminal at Provo. All passengers leave the secure area upon arrival. As at all airports, Allegiant recommends checking in 2 hours ahead of flight time and closes check-in 45 minutes before departure.
The Utah Valley is a family vacation destination focusing on the outdoor beauty and landscape of the Wasatch Front. Activities include hang gliding, world-class fly fishing, skiing and dinosaur hunting. Sundance Mountain Resort is about 20 minutes from downtown Provo.
