Northwest Air adds flights between Aspen, Memphis

Aspen Times Staff Report

Northwest Airlines announced yesterday it will add nonstop flights between Aspen and Memphis, Tenn., from Feb. 5 to April 1.

According to Bill Tomcich, of Aspen Central Reservations, the additional nine flights will be a boon for travelers trying to get to and from Aspen during the ski season. The round trip cost will be $451, he said.

New, 69-seat jets will leave Memphis every Saturday morning bound for Aspen. Return flights will be in the late afternoon and evening.

“The new flight will give customers the additional service they’ve been asking for during ski season, and provide better connections for mountain-bound travelers in the South and Southeast,” said Jim Cron, of Northwest.

Northwest currently offers service between Aspen and Minneapolis/St. Paul, with twice-daily service in the winter and daily service in the summer.
