Continental Airlines will offer new winter service between its Houston hub and Gunnison Crested Butte Regional Airport in Colorado from December 16, 2010 to April 3, 2011.
This is excellent news for our resort community. Many of our visitors in both winter and summer are from the Houston Texas region. A direct flight makes getting to the ski slopes in Crested Butte this winter a snap. Gunnison is located a quick 30 miles from Crested Butte.
“The thought of a snowy mountain escape is especially appealing after a long hot summer,” says Jim Ferea, Continental Airlines’ managing director scheduling. “Our new Houston to Gunnison flight joins our growing list of ski destinations in Colorado that are easily reached through convenient connections at our Houston hub.”
The new service will depart Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH) at 11:40 a.m. and arrive Gunnison Crested Butte Regional Airport (GUC) at 1:25 p.m. local time. The return flight will depart Gunnison at 2:15 p.m. and arrive in Houston at 5:35 p.m.
Continental’s flight will operate daily except between January 4 and February 16, 2011, when the service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. “We’ve had great success with service to Houston in the past, and it continues to be our number one requested city for added air service,” says Daren Cole, vice president of marketing and sales for Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
