Despite the tranquil and secluded setting of Aspen Snowmass, the resort is one of the most accessible mountain destinations in North America, especially in summer. This is largely due to the convenient air service at Aspen / Pitkin County Airport (ASE). Throughout summer, between 17 and 21 commercial flights arrive here daily, with service from seven destinations.

Ready for “wheels up” on your summer vacation? Here’s all you need to know about flying to Aspen in summer.


Summer Flights into Aspen at a Glance

American Airlines offers three daily nonstop flights, plus new additional flights on Saturday, into Aspen during the summer, from the following cities: Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Chicago/O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

Meanwhile, United Airlines continues to have the largest flight schedule at ASE, right through the summer months. Each day, United provides an average of eight flights into Aspen from Denver International Airport (DEN), two flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), as well as a flight each from San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Houston/George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Chicago/O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

Finally, Delta Air Lines offers two daily flights into Aspen from its hub at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) as well as three flights per week to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

These schedules are subject to change, and some flights begin to taper off in the second half of August. Consult the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport website for more details.

Flights Into Fall

With lower demand after Labor Day, the schedule of flights decreases at ASE in September and October. But United Airlines still maintains between five and seven flights daily from Denver, and a single nonstop flight daily from Los Angeles. American Airlines also operates a single flight from Dallas/Fort Worth into early October.

Again, flight schedules are subject to change. Consult the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport website for more details.
