American Airlines adds Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth winter service to Aspen


ASPEN, Colorado — American Airlines is expanding winter service in Aspen with new nonstop flights from Chicago and expanded service from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

The Aspen Times reports (http://bit.ly/1GzwByo ) that Aspen-Pitkin County Airport Director John Kinney announced the new service Wednesday. There will be daily nonstop flights from Chicago O'Hare as well as a third nonstop from Dallas for the holidays.

United is the only other airline that offers nonstop winter service to Aspen from Chicago. On average, United offers four daily flights from Chicago during the same time frame.

Stay Aspen Snowmass President Bill Tomcich says American Airlines first entered the Aspen market in 2011 with service from Los Angeles and Dallas. The Los Angeles flight made connections to Aspen convenient from Australia, Aspen's top destination winter market.
