Podcast: Changes Coming to Ski Country Airports

Dec. 14, 2020

Flight activity is up at airports near busy Colorado ski resorts, which could mean delays, holds and even diversions. Flight crews should be aware of a new procedure for arrivals at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport and a new resource available to assist them in scheduling arrivals and meeting their passengers’ expectations. “Plan early, both on the customer service side and the flight operations side,” advised NBAA Northern Mountain Regional Representative Kristi Ivey. “It’s also important that the flight crew, the charter company and the flight operations team have realistic discussions with the passengers regarding their itineraries.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Paul Diffenderfer, aviation systems engineer at MITRE
  • Kristi Ivey, NBAA Northern Mountain regional representative
  • Dean Snell, manager with NBAA Air Traffic Services (ATS)
