Also, a re-timed morning inbound trip from DFW will now allow connections from Latin America throughout the winter. All these new flights are now open for sale at www.aa.com.

“These new flights offered by American Airlines will open new connections for locals and visitors alike that may have been challenging in the past,” said Aspen/Pitkin County Airport Director, John Kinney.

Americans winter seasonal service from DFW, LAX and now Chicago begins Dec. 17, 2015 and will now feature a total of five flights daily through Jan. 4, 2016 and four daily flights for the balance of the winter through April 4, 2016.
