There will be new and expanded nonstop flights into the Aspen Airport (ASE) this summer and fall, officials announced recently. The expansion includes the return of the Delta flights from Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, marking the first time the airline has flown into Aspen Snowmass during the summer months in nearly a decade.
Delta announced it is adding daily nonstop flights from Salt Lake City (SLC), plus nonstop flights from Los Angeles (LAX) on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning June 10. Flights from LAX will continue through Aug. 30, and Salt Lake City flights will operate through Sept 4.
The move creates convenient one-stop connections from most points of origin for summer travellers to Aspen Snowmass. All flights operated by Delta will be using 70-seat CRJ-700 jets.
In addition, United and American will be extending nonstop flights farther into the summer and fall months, with nonstop summer flights from Chicago (ORD), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO) all scheduled through Sept. 4. United service from Chicago (ORD) will operate daily through Oct. 27. United also will continue its daily flights from Denver (DIA), with as many as eight flights daily during the summer and fall seasons.
It's the first time since 2008 that all three airlines have served Aspen Snowmass during the summer months and the first time ever that nonstop flights will be offered from seven different cities, according to officials.
Delta summer flights into Aspen are scheduled to depart LAX at 10:55 a.m. and arrive in Aspen at 2:16 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from June 10 through Aug. 30. Aspen to LAX flights will depart at 2:45 p.m. and arrive in Los Angeles at 4:01 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from June 10 through Aug. 30. Flights from Salt Lake City will depart at 8:15 p.m. and arrive in Aspen at 9:25 p.m. daily from June 10 through Sept. 4. Return flights to Salt Lake City will be part Aspen at 7:00 a.m. and arrive in Salt Lake City at 8:20 a.m. daily from June 10 through Sept. 4.
