Top 5 Travel Tips from Aspen/Pitkin County Airport
Winter Season 2009
Arrival at the Airport
For travel within the U.S., we recommend arriving 60 minutes before your flight if you are not checking bags and 90 minutes before your flight if you are checking bags. For international travel, we recommend arriving 2 hours before your flight. Expect extended lines for the Security Checkpoint.
On-Line Check-In and Information
Take advantage of united.com and delta.com for early check-in, updated flight information and any additional travel information.
Rebooked to an Alternate Airport
(For Example: Denver, Eagle, or Grand Junction) When departing from an alternate airport due to weather cancellations, allow enough travel time to ensure arriving at that airport in time to complete check-in and check baggage. During your travel to the alternate airport, please contact your airline to check flight availability, flight status and have your reservation/ticket changed for a faster check-in at the new airport.

Streamline your travel, avoid unpredictable checked baggage fees, and save your energy for the slopes. Choose Aspen luggage delivery.
Flight Information and Status
Aspen / Snowmass Flight Information Displays (FIDs) are available for reference in the Aspen Airport as well as on Channel 8 in the Aspen area. Flight times and status are also available on united.com and delta.com. It is our commitment to give our customers the timeliest information possible, however, the Aspen Airport is located at a ski area and weather conditions that create great ski conditions may also adversely impact flights. In variable weather conditions, many time delays and cancellations may not be known or updated until scheduled departure time because almost every departure is dependant upon an arrival that may not be able to land. Be advised that a flight status may change very quickly during these conditions and normal information displays may not reflect these changes until you have already departed for the airport.
