Colorado Springs campaigns to get flights back


Officials at the Colorado Springs Airport are launching a campaign to attract more air traffic after the number of flights tumbled to a 22-year low.

The departure of Frontier Airlines next month will cut passenger traffic at the airport by 16 percent, according to a report released Wednesday. Many passengers are choosing to travel to Denver International Airport, where they have more choices.

The Colorado Springs Gazette says city officials are looking at other airports close to large regional hubs, like Tucson, Ariz.
