ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Frontier Airlines is ending its Denver-Aspen flights in April.
The airline has been flying two round-trips on 74-seat airplanes during the ski season and one in the off-season. The service will end April 16. Aspen tourism officials tell the Aspen Daily News they are disappointed but not surprised by the announcement Friday. The airline has said it wants to sell the Bombardier Q400 planes it uses on the route.
United also provides Denver-Aspen service. American flies to Aspen from Los Angeles and Dallas-Fort Worth.
Tourism officials tell the Aspen Times that anyone who booked a Frontier flight between Aspen and Denver after April 15 will be switched to United.
