Colorado Springs Airport Loses Non-Stop Service to Dulles
United Airlines announced this week it will be ending its non-stop daily flights from Colorado Springs to Dulles International Airport in the Washington, D.C. Area. The airline has offered the flights through subsidiary SkyWest Airlines since 2010. But even as the city's airport loses one non-stop flight, it gains another as Frontier Airlines begins offering non-stop flights to Phoenix on Thursday, marking the first time since early last year passengers will be able to fly from Colorado Springs to Arizona's largest city.
A United spokesman noted that passengers with reservations for future Springs to Dulles flights will be contacted to offer assistance in changing their itinerary. The spokesman added that United will still be the largest carrier for Colorado Springs passengers, with multiple daily flights to Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Sunsetting the Springs to Dulles service is part of a broader cost-cutting plan the carrier is implementing after posting disappointing quarterly results that included a $120 million loss due to some 35,000 flights that had to be canceled because of extreme winter weather.
