2020 was a bust for travel, but airlines (and people) are already looking ahead to the future of travel.
Good news. Southwest Airlines’ previously announced routes within Colorado Springs will be taking off this week (if they haven’t already.) Now, residents of Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado will get new direct flights to some of the country’s most amazing cites. As vaccines become more readily available and cities begin to ease their restrictions, it won’t be long before we can start traveling more often. We can’t wait.

Colorado Springs, Colorado is one of Southwest Airline’s targeted cities for travel, with a bunch of new direct routes. The shortest route is the new one between Colorado Springs and Denver, so if you’re looking to get out of the city and enjoy some new outdoor adventures, this may be the trip for you. Denver residents can also fly the new route straight to Chicago through O’Hare Airport. The route has already begun starting on Valentine’s Day this year.

Colorado Springs is also getting a flight to Las Vegas, where you can sightsee at many of the outdoor locations like the Bellagio fountains or nearby 7 Magic Mountains painted rocks. But COVID-19 restrictions are continuing to ease, which is good news.

Southwest will be only one of three airlines with these routes (United and American) though Southwest is stopping off at a smaller airport in Chicago, closer to the Downtown area.
Fares are starting as low as $59 dollars, and some routes are already available. You can check your flight options here.
