Frontier Airlines is to continue its Denver (DEN) to Aspen (ASE) service using one of three Bombardier Q400s which it has decided to keep on to service to this and several other Colorado locations.
Service will include one departure per day from 1 October through to 17 November, two departures a day from 18 November until 15 December and then four daily departures from 16 December through to April 2011.
Frontier had announced in late July that it would end the Denver–Aspen service on 30 September but, as mentioned, the company then made the decision to keep the three Q400s.
“Frontier is very pleased to be able to continue to serve the Aspen area,” noted Daniel Shurz, VP of strategy and planning. “The versatility of the Q400 aircraft makes it an ideal and cost-effective aircraft to fly into Aspen and, with this continuing schedule, we will be able to offer travellers to Aspen a low-cost, high-quality experience for their fall and winter travel.”
In addition to Aspen, Frontier will use the Q400s to serve other Colorado routes, including Durango and Colorado Springs.
