Playa Air Express have been serving Burning Man for more than a decade. A couple of years ago they flew my sister in, we were very happy with the experience and value for money. Now they have expanded their fleet and their routes. They are open for reservations now, book early as things will get crazy closer to Aug 30. Flights start at $475.
Here’s their latest newsletter.
PLAYA AIR EXPRESS 2015: Annual Burning Man Newsletter
Hello everyone and Happy 2015! We would like to take a special moment to thank all of our existing clients for flying with us after all these years to the annual homecoming on the Playa for Burning Man 2015, as well as welcome new clients who will fly with us.
During the past several months we have been developing more routes from desirable cities to fly directly into the Burning Man event, and we wanted to share the good news with you as you begin to make your travel plans. Along with the great news that JetBlue is expanding their services, and will now be offering daily, non-stop service from JFK to Reno, Playa Air Express has also expanded our services, aircraft fleet, and routes as well into Burning Man/Black Rock City (88NV).
We now offer a King Air 200 for non-stop service from the Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas areas!
- Flights originating from the Los Angeles area direct to Burning Man, we will fly out of Hawthorne airport (Jack Northrop Field-KHHR) which is approximately 10 minutes from the LAX airport.
- Flights originating from Las Vegas area direct to Burning Man we will fly out of the North Las Vegas airport (VGT) approximately 20 minutes from Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport.
- Flights originating from the Phoenix area direct to Burning Man we will fly out of Chandler, AZ, (Chandler Municipal Airport-KCHD) approximately 25 minutes from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International.
- We will also have an additional aircraft positioned for our Bay Area routes direct to Burning Man which will be flying out of Hayward, CA. (Hayward Executive Airport-KHWD) approximately 30 minutes from the SFO and Oakland airports.
If you desire to travel to Burning Man originating from another regional city such as Seattle,Portland, Salt Lake City, San Jose, San Diego, or Denver please inquire with us when you submit your email to us. In addition, we can arrange jet charter services from many US locations and either connect you to a shuttle from Reno direct into Burning Man, or connect you to our other designated gateway cities to get you there as well. Helicopters are available as well.
We still offer our great air shuttle services from Reno direct to Burning Man with (2) five seat aircraft (depending on baggage) out of Atlantic Aviation which is a short 10 minutes from the Reno/Tahoe International airport.
Please email us for rates and scheduling information at email@example.com.
We will begin taking reservations and answering questions for travel arrangements to the 2015 Burning Man event on Monday, April 13th, 2015. We look forward to continuing to serve all of your Burning Man flight needs, and we appreciate your business. Thank you.

Let me PROMISE you, that guy is not going to be waiting for anyone at the Gate… unless his friends leave him there, in which case he’ll be hustled into someone else’s vehicle as soon as possible.
But since you mentioned it, I think I have seen someone like that hanging around the Greeters’ station.
Can we jump out instead of landing to save some money?
Yes, I am sure skydiving in is a more expensive option.
What’s with the anti-burner vibe?
Hug whoever you want, I don’t care.
how much for la to playa?
If you click the Playa Air Express link (or the $475) you will go to their web site with prices. LA-BRC is $875.
My price included ticketing overhead for my assistant to handle the details.
…No, actually, I made up a price and then checked it and found out I was not far off: round trip from LA is $1,800 pp.
Why would you want to promote this service?
Seems like advertising to me…
I promote many services I like. I do not sell advertising, this blog is a free gift to the Burner community.
All depends on who you consider the riff-raff. 😉
lol good point!
So much for not leaving a footprint haha!
Depends on how long a footprint you are considering.
