ASPEN – Frontier Airlines announced Thursday that it will be sticking around Aspen for a while.

Using its Q400 aircraft, Frontier will offer one daily round-trip flight between Aspen and Denver from April 17 through June 5. It will then increase its summer service to four daily flights, the airline said.

“In the midst of a great winter season in the market, we are very pleased to continue serving the Aspen community,” said Daniel Shurz, vice president of Strategy and Planning, in a statement. “In addition to providing our guests convenient access to this top travel destination, we are just as pleased to continue serving the Aspen community with Frontier’s affordable non-stop service to Denver which provides connections to our more than 70 destinations across the U.S., Mexico and Costa Rica.”

Frontier intended to suspend service to Aspen in April, when it planned to remove the remaining Q400 aircraft from its fleet. After making some changes to its fleet plan for the upcoming year, the carrier decided to keep the remaining unsold Q400s and continue its Aspen service.

Frontier has four remaining Q400s in its fleet and will primarily serve Aspen, Colorado Springs and Durango with the aircraft.

Frontier is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Republican Airways Holdings Inc.
