While there are three airports for Santa Fe, you will probably only really use two of them as the Los Alamos County Airport is not typically used by commercial airlines. The first is the Santa Fe Municipal Airport. This airport, which is located about 20 minutes from downtown, is great if you are flying locally as it only goes to and from Denver, Dallas, and Phoenix. While there are about ten hotels nearby, there are not any specifically dedicated to the airport itself.
The most popular option is the Albuquerque International Sunport Airport with its one terminal, four concourses, and multiple destinations and commercial airlines. Though it is about an hour drive from Santa Fe, there are plenty of ground transportation services to and from. If you would prefer to stay nearby the airport, it is good to know that most of the ten closely located hotels include a free shuttle.
