Depending on what you mean by "major city", here are several possibilities, including the number of miles from the center of Yellowstone N.P.:
Those having an airport with scheduled commercial passenger flights are:

Depends upon what you call major.
Idaho Falls ID is about 155 miles from Yellowstone. It has a mall. The nearest city with over a million residents is Denver CO, about 580 miles from Yellowstone.

West Yellowstone, MT (pop. 1,435) is located at the west entrance. Gardiner, MT (pop.851) is located at the north entrance. Red Lodge, MT (pop. 2,177) is 68 miles from the northeast entrance. Cody, WY (pop. 9,309) is 52 miles from the east entrance. Jackson, WY (pop. 8,647) is 57 miles from the south entrance. If I'm not staying in Yellowstone when visiting, my favorite place to stay is West Yellowstone because it's the most centrally located for visiting the major areas of interest in the park.
