PUEBLO—Pueblo Memorial Airport and Southern Airways hosted a special, exclusive event on Thursday, Jan. 26 to celebrate the new partnership of daily flights offered from Pueblo Airport (PUB) to Denver International Airport (DIA).
“We are excited to welcome a new carrier to Pueblo with Southern Airways to service more frequent flights to and from Denver,” said Director of Aviation Greg Pedroza. “This is making travel more affordable and accessible in our community and helps those in Pueblo realize what an amenity Pueblo Memorial Airport is to our city.”
This partnership began Jan. 15 and a more public celebration allowed for invited guests to tour a current Southern Airways aircraft and learn about the new carrier partnership. The daily service provides double the number of weekly flights available at Pueblo Memorial Airport and offers connections to United Airlines. Travelers have more access to flights for business or personal travel accommodations.
“Southern Airways is so excited to add Pueblo to our growing mainland domestic network, “said Chief Commercial Officer of Southern Airways Mark Cestari. “We have an established hub in Denver, including maintenance and support resources throughout this region. This will help to ensure that Southern’s operation is reliable and on-time for Pueblo flyers looking to avoid the expense, hassle and unpredictable drives to Denver International Airport for their next flight.”
The new schedule offers multiple departures to Denver per day with 5:40 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and 5:50 p.m. options with return services from Denver departing at 7:35 a.m., 1:35 p.m., 4:25 p.m. and 7:55 p.m. departure times. The frequent flight options also allow for connections to be made at DIA for both domestic and international travel.
