Smooth Travel in the Valley
Flights out of Aspen’s airport are going much more smoothly, according to the resort’s main booking company. Scores of flights were canceled Monday and Sunday, leaving many passengers stuck in Denver, Grand Junction, and elsewhere. Bill Tomcich is President of Stay Aspen Snowmass. He says many of those travelers are now in Aspen faster than they would have in recent years.
“What used to be a two or three day catch up to clear all of the standbys who were distressed because of their canceled flights, has now taken less than a day.”
That’s because airlines are fine tuning daily schedules much more precisely than before. Tomcich and others have fingers crossed for not too much snow on Friday and Saturday to allow for many more visitors to arrive.
