Montrose Adds Another Major Hub With Charlotte Flights


 TELLURIDE, Colorado (July 7, 2017) – With the heat of summer upon us, planning for the coming winter is well underway. The Montrose/Telluride region is set to add another major hub to its network with service on American Airlines from Charlotte (CLT) to Montrose (MTJ), flying Saturdays through the winter season. 

The Charlotte flight will run from Dec. 23, 2017 – March 31, 2018. The new flight brings the total number of non-stop routes to 11 this winter season for the two airports serving the destination, Montrose (MTJ) & Telluride (TEX). 

"With the Charlotte addition, Telluride/Montrose continues to raise the bar, providing some of the best among mountain destinations," said Colorado Flights COO Matt Skinner. "Our expansive network offers guests, locals and businesses alike the option to easily travel into and out of western Colorado to hubs nationwide and beyond." 

Charlotte was a key hub in the US Airways system prior to its merger with American Airlines, and provides excellent connectivity up and down the eastern seaboard in the expanded network. 

Telluride/Montrose continues to take major steps forward with American, having grown service with the airline by more than five-times over the past several years, increasing from approximately 11,000 to 57,000 round-trip seats, including flights from Dallas (DFW), Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) and now CLT. 

"We're proud to offer this new service to Telluride/Montrose," said Marius Jasevicius, Manager – American Airlines Network Planning. "Customers from around the world will now have access to Telluride from our second largest hub." 

Colorado Flights provides service from Dallas (DFW), Houston (IAH), Chicago (ORD), Phoenix (PHX), Newark (EWR), LaGuardia (LGA), Atlanta (ATL), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and Charlotte (CLT), along with Denver (DEN) service, giving the Telluride (TEX) & Montrose (MTJ) airports 15 non-stop flights from 11 major hubs for winter 2017-18. 

The full winter 2017-18 flight schedule will be available soon.
