This summer, United and American Airlines offer several options for nonstop flights each week, flying directly from 10 cities into Aspen / Snowmass Pitkin County Airport (ASE).
Those cities/airports include:
Snowmass is a mere 6 miles from the Pitkin County Airport , which means you can get from gate to gondola or the town of Snowmass Village in 30 minutes.
Aspen / Snowmass Flight Information Displays (FIDs) are available in the Aspen Airport, and on cable Channel 8 throughout the Aspen Snowmass area. Flight times and status are also available on www.united.com and www.aa.com. The airport strives to give passengers the timeliest flight information possible, though the weather conditions that create great ski conditions may also adversely impact flights. In variable weather, time delays and cancellations may not be known or updated until the scheduled departure times, because those departures are dependent upon arrivals that may not be able to land. Be advised that a flight status may change very quickly during these conditions and normal information displays may not reflect these changes until you have already departed for the airport. For more information on the airport or an updated flight status go to www.aspenairport.com or call 1-970-544-3188.
For travel within the U.S., we recommend arriving 60 minutes before your flight if you are not checking bags and 90 minutes before your flight if you are. For international travel, we recommend arriving 2 hours before your flight. Expect extended lines for the Security Checkpoint.
Take advantage of www.united.com and www.aa.com for early check-in, updated flight information, and additional travel information.
When departing from an alternate airport (Denver, Eagle, or Grand Junction ) due to weather cancellations, allow enough travel time to ensure arriving at that airport in time to complete check-in and check baggage. During your travel to the alternate airport, please contact your airline to check flight availability and flight status, and make sure to have your reservation/ticket changed for a faster check-in at the new airport.
