A third airline will soon be flying in and out of Aspen.

American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, today announced it will begin nonstop seasonal service between Aspen/Pitkin County Airport and both Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport beginning Dec. 15.

Eagle will operate the daily trips with two-class Bombardier CRJ-700 jets.

The service will run from Dec. 15 through April 2, 2012; then resume June 14 through Aug. 20, 2012.

"This exciting announcement is the result of years of pursuit that wouldn't be possible without the foresight and collaboration of many community partners," said Bill Tomcich, president of central reservations agency Stay Aspen Snowmass. "America Airline's new service into Aspen/Snowmass fills a long-standing void and will make it easier than ever to travel from Texas, South Florida, and Australia — along with dozens of other markets."

American Airlines joins Frontier and United Airlines in servicing Aspen travelers.

Customers may begin booking the new service beginning Monday, Aug. 1.

American Airlines is adding service between Aspen and Dallas/Fort Worth as well as Aspen and Los Angeles.

"We are pleased to introduce seasonal jet service to Aspen/Snowmass from two of our cornerstone hubs in Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles," said Gary Foss, vice president of marketing and planning for American's regional network. "Not only will it provide greater access to all the world-class ski resorts and recreation this beautiful and cosmopolitan area has to offer, but it will also provide Pitkin County residents with convenient connections to destinations throughout the American Airlines global network, as well as destinations served by our oneworld® partners, including Sydney, Melbourne and Tokyo."

The flight from Dallas to Aspen will depart daily at 4:20 p.m. and arrive at 5:30 p.m. The flight from Aspen to Dallas will depart daily at 12:40 p.m. and arrive at 3:40 p.m. The flight from Los Angeles to Aspen will depart daily at 9 a.m. and arrive at noon.
