This ski season will be a record for Aspen-Pitkin County Airport.

United will operate operate a total of 14 flights a day on Mondays through Friday, and 16 flights a day on Saturdays and Sundays this season.

United will have 12 daily flights from Denver (DEN) to Aspen (ASE) on BAe 146s operated by United Express carrier, Air Wisconsin. The carrier will operate 2 additional flights on Saturdays and Sundays for a total of 14 flights a day on weekends!

United will also operate 1 daily flight from San Francisco (SFO) and 1 daily flight from Los Angeles (LAX) on BAe 146s operated by United Express carrier, Air Wisconsin.

Aspen is one of the most dangerous airports in the world with a glide slope of 4 degrees. It's single runway is 7004ft. long and 100ft. wide. The airport has imposed a 100,000lb. weight limitation and a 95ft. wingspan limitation.

Northwest Airlines which operates only during the winter season to Aspen will operate 2 daily flights from Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) on Avro RJ85s operated by Northwest AirLink carrier, Mesaba. The carrier will also operate an additional 3rd flight on Saturdays and Sundays.

The carrier will also operate 1 daily flight from Memphis (MEM) on Avro RJ85s operated by Northwest AirLink carrier, Mesaba. The carrier will operate an additional 2nd flight on Saturdays.

That's a total of 19 flights a day on Mondays through Friday and 23 flights a day on Saturdays and Sundays.

These figures do not include the Aspen Ski Plane.

For a number of reasons, this would be a great place to plane-spot!

last time i checked Mesa doesn't own any -300s (Dash 8s)

Btw, the Aspen Ski Plane *IS* Air Wisconsin operated flights, not charters..

I'm too lazy to do the math. I also flunked high school algebra. How do those numbers translate into available seats?

Tom in NO,

Well, you'll have to take the number of seats of each aircraft that flies to ASE and multiply that number by the frequency of that specific aircraft.

You do the same for the other aircraft that fly into ASE and you'll get your number of seats. It won't be difficult, as there are only BAe 146s, Avro RJ85s, and Dash 8-200s at ASE.

Regards

but the AWAC 146s can vary from the "stubby" -100 model to the 100 seat -300 model, which will probably be running between LAX & SFO to ASE..
