Spaceport America and Ted Turner Expeditions partner to offer the Spaceport America Immersion Excursion

Ted Turner Expeditions and Spaceport America have developed an exclusive, behind-the-scenes, immersive tour of the iconic commercial spaceport in New Mexico.

SPACEPORT AMERICA, N.M. and ATLANTA – Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport and Ted Turner Expeditions, provider of individually crafted eco-conscious journeys to Ted Turner-owned properties, have partnered to offer the new Spaceport America Immersion Excursion.

Ted Turner Expeditions (TTX) in New Mexico offers unique adventures tailored to deliver insightful and exhilarating experiences at four locales: Turner’s Ladder, Armendaris and Vermejo ranches and Sierra Grande Lodge & Spa. Each well-appointed property reflects its surrounding geography and its area’s rich history. The close proximity of Spaceport America to the Sierra Grande Lodge & Spa and the Armendaris and Ladder ranches present a serendipitous opportunity for this exclusive partnership.

The Spaceport America Immersion Excursion is a behind-the-scenes look at the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport. For a one-of-a-kind experience, guests can opt to land their private aircraft at 9NM9 spaceway 16-34, Spaceport America’s two-mile-long spaceway designed to accommodate all types of space and air vehicles known to humankind. Alternatively, expert TTX adventure guides can arrange for helicopter transport or drive guests to the Spaceport America destination.

Once on site, Spaceport America crewmembers welcome guests providing them with exclusive access to the inner workings of a commercial spaceport. Guests have the opportunity to interact with Spaceport America aerospace and site operations crewmembers as they tour the futuristic horizontal launch area within the 18,000-acre campus.

“We are very excited about our partnership with Ted Turner Expeditions and the opportunity to expand our invitation to space and welcome more guests,” said Spaceport America CEO Christine Anderson. “By offering an immersive look at the inner workings of a real live commercial spaceport, we hope our guests will depart inspired about the dynamic commercial space industry.”

“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Spaceport America to offer our Ted Turner Expeditions guests in New Mexico this exclusive opportunity to virtually explore space,” said Ted Turner, founder of Ted Turner Expeditions. “The Immersion Excursion tour is a natural and exciting add-on for our guests who visit this beautiful part of the Southwest to escape and indulge their curiosity about the natural world.”
