Steamboat Airline Schedules & Connections

Steamboat's airline connections are improving. We have added 50,000 new ski season seats in the last few years and our Fly Steamboat program continues to actively work with the airlines to add more seats and more direct flights year round. In addition, the airport is upgrading electronic controls, to cut the interval between landings of aircraft, now at 15 minutes, down to two minutes. The technology that will make this possible is called WAM, or wide-area multilateration. It is expected to be in place for the 2010-11 ski season. We have the most accessible airport in the Rocky Mtns right now in bad weather and this will allow us to get in even more flights in bad weather.

It is also worth noting that beginning in May United Airlines is going to year round jet service out of Hayden (HDN) for the flights that connect via Denver.
