UNITERD ALTERS SEATS TO HAYDEN, ELIMINATES TURBOPROPS FOR JETS
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe frequency of commuter airline seats bound for Hayden this winter took a small hit last week, but the local airport gained an all-jet fleet and 42 additional daily seats for its Denver service in the process.
"It's definitely mixed news," Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. Vice President of Marketing Andy Wirth said.
The changes on the Denver-Hayden route are just a small part of a major overhaul United is making to its schedule. The airline is shooting for a 23-percent reduction in its seats as it reacts to decreased demand for air travel since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The schedule changes mean the daily number of inbound seats from Denver will increase from 426 on seven daily roundtrips to 468 seats on five daily roundtrips, a net increase of 42 inbound seats.
That gain in seats translates into 294 seats a week. Based on a 16-week winter airline season, that's an increase of 4,704 inbound seats from Denver.
