Daily Nonstops Link Colorado to Two Key International Gateways

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, today announced it will begin nonstop seasonal service between Aspen/Pitkin County Airport in Aspen/Snowmass, Colo., and both Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport, beginning Dec. 15.

Eagle will operate the daily trips with two-class CRJ-700 jet aircraft.  The service will run from Dec. 15 through April 2, 2012; then resume June 14 through Aug. 20, 2012.  Customers may begin booking the new service beginning Monday, Aug.1

“We are pleased to introduce seasonal jet service to Aspen/Snowmass from two of our cornerstone hubs in Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles,” said Gary Foss, Vice President of Marketing and Planning for American’s regional network.  “Not only will it provide greater access to all the world-class ski resorts and recreation this beautiful and cosmopolitan area has to offer, but will provide Pitkin County residents with convenient connections to destinations throughout the American Airlines global network, as well as destinations served by our oneworld partners, including Sydney, Melbourne and Tokyo.”

“This exciting announcement is the result of years of pursuit that wouldn’t be possible without the foresight and collaboration of many community partners,” said Bill Tomcich, President of central reservations agency Stay Aspen Snowmass.  “AA’s new service into Aspen/Snowmass fills a long-standing void and will make it easier than ever to travel from Texas, South Florida, and Australia – along with dozens of other markets.”
