Frontier Airlines Continuing Aspen-Denver Flights

DENVER (AP) — Frontier Airlines says it will continue flying between Aspen and Denver this summer instead of suspending service in April.

The Republic Airways Holdings Inc. subsidiary flies to Aspen using Q400 turboprop aircraft, which it planned to remove from its fleet. Instead Frontier Airlines decided to keep its unsold Q400s.

Frontier said Thursday that it plans to reduce its flight schedule between Aspen and Denver to one daily roundtrip flight starting April 18. Starting June 5, it will offer four daily roundtrip flights.

Frontier says the four Q400s in its fleet will primarily serve Aspen, Colorado Springs and Durango.
