If you don't mind a possibly higher price, the regional airport at Elko, Nevada would be the most convenient. Elko features several car rental agencies, but it's still 180 miles north of Ely. If you price-shop, the connecting flights into Elko might even be competitive. Quite often, though, flights in and out of Las Vegas are highly competitive. It's one of the busiest airports in the world.
Although it's a bit further from Ely, the road from Reno to eastern Nevada offers a truly unique experience. Highway 50 roughly parallels the Pony Express Trail. Remnants of the trail are visible for much of the way. This route cuts through the heart of the Great Basin.
