First-Ever Commercial Jet Service to Telluride Kicks off Today
Today is a big day for Telluride! For the first time in its history, the Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) has commercial jet service. Today, Denver Air Connection launched daily flights on the 30-seat Dornier 328JET from Denver (DEN) to TEX. The flights will operate year-round with the exception of two short seasonal breaks in spring and fall. Denver Air Connection’s relationship with United enables travelers to book and connect through the global United network to the TEX airport.
The Dornier 328JET offers a comfortable 30-seat configuration with full in-flight services. Flight time from DEN-TEX will be just 40 minutes in the air, and the schedule will be optimized for connections through Denver. Telluride is served by two airports -- TEX, now offering commercial options on Denver Air Connection and Boutique Air with their United relationships, and the Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), offering nonstop flights to 5 hubs nationwide in summer (11 hubs nationwide in winter) on four major carriers. Travelers can book now through United or Denver Air Connection for travel at united.com and denverairconnection.com.
