Mile High City Added to SLO Schedule

The San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport announced on Feb. 27 that United Airlines will begin nonstop service between San Luis Obispo and Denver on June 8, making the “Mile-High City” the second destination added to the airports route map this year.
It’s a major milestone for the Visit SLO campaign and the Economic Vitality Corp., marking 2017 as the first year that three commercial airlines will service SLO to Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle and Denver.
The Seattle deal with Alaska Airlines was announced last year with service to start in April.
Flights to Denver will add a fifth destination for a total of 13 flights daily and one additional seasonal flight from SLO.
SLO County staff has been working with the local business community for years and with Denver to add the flight to its lineup.
The flight will be operated by Sky West Airlines and the first arriving flight will leave Denver on June 8 at 7:10 p.m. and arrive at SLO at 8:48. The plane will stay overnight before a return flight the next day.
The SLO Airport technically serves areas as far north as Southern Monterey County and as far south as Northern Santa Barbara County, although there has been competition with the Santa Maria Airport for certain types of business commuter.
“Along with an all-jet fleet and additional flights, this is one more positive change to add to the list of exciting announcements to come out of our airport in just the past two years,” County Airports Director, Kevin Bumen said in a press release. “So, we’re going to continue to do everything we can to make sure the entire region knows that we have a great airport right here in our own community, and the added flights and new terminal is a win-win for everyone.”
Current round-trip flights to Denver, with stopovers in San Francisco or Los Angeles sell in the $500 range.
