Southwest Airlines’ Steamboat Springs Flight Plan

  • Nonstop between Denver and Steamboat Springs (operates three-times daily)
  • Nonstop between Dallas and Steamboat Springs (operates on Saturdays & Sundays)

“This year, Customers are looking to experience more of the nation’s great outdoors. By linking both Denver and Dallas nonstop to Steamboat Springs, Customers across a majority of our network will be able to reach the Rocky Mountains,” said Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer.

“As we look toward the winter months, we know our hassle-free and pro-Customer policies like skis fly free1, bags fly free and no change fees will give travelers extra peace of mind when booking their much-needed winter getaways.”

“Having Southwest pick Steamboat as their first winter seasonal, mountain airport is a game changer. Southwest Airlines’ popularity, connectivity, and low-cost fares equals more access for skiers and snowboarders to the Champagne Powder snow of Steamboat,” said Rob Perlman, president and COO of Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation.

“As a brand, Southwest and Steamboat Ski Resort are a perfect fit. We both emphasize a genuine friendliness that makes visitors from all over feel welcome. We are incredibly excited to partner with Southwest on these daily flights and to welcome Southwest flyers to Steamboat this winter.”
