Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver) will end service to the mountain ski resort destination of Aspen on September 30, 2010. This is also the last day of operations for Lynx Aviation and the Bombardier DHC-8-402s (Q400s). Frontier has elected to not use Republic Airlines’ (2nd) Embraer ERJ 170s or ERJ 190s into ASE.
Delta Air Lines will also not return to Aspen this coming winter season, leaving only United with the United Express service.
