It's the best season for a trip to Grand Canyon now, and I'd rather to recommend the best travel line for you and some tips may help your travel from Los Angeles to Grand Canyon.
Schedule a flight from Los Angeles airport (LAX) to Flagstaff (FLG). You may need to have a layover in Phoenix, Arizona. The Grand Canyon Airport is only served regularly by flights that originate in Nevada. Mesa, US Airways, Ameriflight and Empire Airlines all serve the Flagstaff airport. The flights will take between 4 and 6 hours. This is likely to be the most expensive way to travel from Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon. Flights often run between $400 and $600.
Take a tour or a shuttle from Flagstaff to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
