Denver Air Connection Announces Texas Launch Date

At the beginning of September 2021, the Department of Transportation (DOT)  approved the alternate service plan request by a local Colorado-based Denver Air Connection. The request was to use some of the carrier’s current flights out of Clovis, N.M. and operate flights to Dallas Ft. Worth in addition to the prior, and the best part, it is at no extra cost to the Federal Government.

Nearly three weeks after the DOT announced the approval of the alternate service plan, the airline has released the flight times and seats for booking to the general public. Flights from Dallas Ft. Worth to Clovis, N.M. will operate once daily every day of the week except Wednesdays beginning Nov. 1, 2021. This new flight schedule will affect the current flights to Denver as well, now instead of twice-daily service to Denver, they will see once-daily flights to the Mile High City every day except Tuesdays.

Dallas Ft. Worth will now be the southernmost airport that the carrier fly’s to. All flights operated out of Clovis, N.M. are currently scheduled to operate on the 30-seat Dornier 328Jet according to the DOT document, although they may occasionally swap out to the 50-seat Embraer E145 jet in order to avoid delays or cancellations due to maintenance schedules.

The way the flight scheduled lines up, it is now possible to fly between Dallas and Denver using the 30-seat Dornier Jet, as long as you don’t mind making a stop in Clovis. Five days a week, Thursdays through Mondays, you can leave Dallas Ft. Worth at 1:45 P.M. and arrive in Denver at 4:05 P.M. using the ever so rare 328Jet. That time includes a roughly one-hour stop in the previously mentioned Clovis. Flights from both Dallas and Denver to Clovis are scheduled at 1-Hour and 25-Minutes.

This will be a unique connection and just another airport that this rare jet will be visiting on almost a daily basis. Flights and Schedules are subject to change.

    Joe has always been interested in planes, for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Central New York during the early 2000s when US Airways Express turboprops ruled the skies. Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
