Colorado’s Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) has gained a new commercial air service, thanks to Boutique Air, which will offer a year-round service from Denver International Airport (DEN) to TEX.
Located just 10 minutes from town and the popular Telluride ski resort the airport is renowned for its stunning location, on a mountain-side plateau, and 9,070-foot elevation.
Commenting on the new route, Boutique Air CEO, Shawn Simpson, said: “Telluride is a world-class destination, and we are thrilled to be connecting it to our Denver International hub later this month.” He added “our strong partnerships with both Colorado Flights Alliance as well as United Airlines have paved the way to this launch, which is just in time for the Telluride Film Festival. We look forward to making it a great success.”
Boutique Air’s flights between the two airports began on 29 August with fares starting at an introductory rate of $149 each way. Its modern fleet of Swiss-made Pilatus PC-12 and Beechcraft King Air 350 Aircraft offers amenities that include reclining leather seats, lavatory and power outlets.
The commercial airline partners with United Airlines, enabling passengers to book and connect through the global United network. It is also part of the Colorado Flights Alliance, an economic development organisation that provides non-stop air services within the region.
Colorado Flights COO, Matt Skinner, exclaimed his excitement about partnering with Boutique Air saying: “Boutique Air brings a proven, high-quality operation and a worldwide partner network, a great fit for both our community and our guests coming to visit throughout the year.”
