Default Regionals doing Aspen flying

I'm kinda curious. Are there any regionals other than OO still flying into Aspen or did skywest take it all when OO opened up a DFW-DMA?

Were there programs like skywest's DMA?

SkyWest has been the only carrier flying into Aspen for Delta for awhile. Republic used to fly there for United until they parked the last of their Q400s 3 years ago. SkyWest just started flying into Aspen for American just over 2.5 years ago, first out of LAX, then ORD, then DFW and PHX. They were doing it well before establishing DFW-DMA, LAX-DMA, and ORD-DMA. Envoy stopped flying into Aspen approximately two years ago.

Other airlines to have flown in there in the past are Lynx, Mesa, Air Wisconsin, Aspen Airways, Republic, and Envoy.

GoJet tried. Didnít get Fed approval... right mow Feds are being slow after the MAX fiasco.... Some Saab 2000 corporate outfit is doing Aspen from Texas.. maybe the will widen the ramp/taxiway and a A220 could do it..??.. wingspan is a issue. And single Eng go around...

Envoy is still approved to do it on the CRJ.

No pilots are qualified under the SARA program, but the program still exists and could be fired up tomorrow.

They are currently working on numbers for the E175 to go there.
It fits, but not sure if it can do the SE GA profile.
