Delta to continue nonstop flights from Salt Lake City year-round

Delta is adding new flights into Aspen Snowmass (ASE) this spring with twice daily nonstop flights from Salt Lake City (SLC).  As Delta’s nearest hub barely 50 minutes flying time from ASE, Salt Lake City offers convenient connections from nearly all points of the compass including west coast destinations from Seattle to San Diego, Hawaii, Cabo and Cancun in Mexico, Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto in Canada, New York/JFK, and dozens of east coast destinations from Boston to Florida, in addition to London, Paris and Amsterdam in Europe.  All flights into ASE will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines using newly refurbished, CRJ-700 jets featuring 69 seats including nine in first class and 16 in Delta Comfort+.

American continues daily nonstop service from DFW year-round

As previously announced, American plans to continue daily service from DFW year-round.  DFW is truly a global hub and American’s largest offering one-stop connections from Asia, Australia, South America, Europe and the Middle East through its One World alliance partners.

United expands spring service from Denver to five flights daily

In addition to maintaining a nearly full complement of up to 23 daily flights from Denver, Chicago, Houston, LAX and SFO through April 8, United now plans to offer a minimum of five daily between Denver and Aspen, throughout the rest of April and May, up from four flights daily last spring. United recently announced new daily nonstop Boeing 787 Dreamliner service between Denver and London/Heathrow beginning March 24.

"This spring expansion by all three airline partners should make it a lot more attractive for locals to travel from their local airport,” said Aspen/Pitkin County Airport Director, John Kinney.

Delta’s new spring flights into ASE are currently scheduled to operate as follows:
