Southern California skiers and Aspen-lovers take note: American Eagle will begin daily nonstop flights between Los Angeles and the Colorado ski resort town in mid-December. And, in case you're already planning a ski vacation, tickets go on sale Monday.
The regional carrier for American Airlines will operate one flight each way starting Dec. 15 between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE), according to an airline news release. The seasonal service will continue through April 2. The airline also will begin flying between Aspen and Dallas/Fort Worth.
The outbound flight will leave L.A. at 9 a.m. and arrive in Aspen at noon. The return flight leaves Aspen at 6:10 p.m. and arrives at 7:35 p.m. (Note: Flight times reflect a one-hour time difference; Aspen operates on MDT.) These flights are set to resume June 14 through Aug. 20, 2012.
