United Airlines Launches Nonstop Los Angeles Winter Service to Steamboat

Los Angeles Flight Provides Convenient One-Stop Service From Australia


STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO-June 8, 2012-Lights, Camera, Action – Go from Tinsletown to Ski Town, USA in one easy flight as United Airlines launches new weekend nonstop winter service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) into the Steamboat/Hayden Airport (HDN) for the upcoming 2012/2013 ski and snowboard season. 


“Skiers and snowboarders now have convenient flight options to reach Steamboat and its incredible Champagne Powder® snow from across California,” said Rob Perlman, senior vice president of marketing & sales for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “International travelers, particularly from Australia, will immediately experience the benefits of this flight with convenient one-stop connections in both directions and the best access seen in decades to Steamboat-Ski Town, U.S.A.®


United's new service from Los Angeles International Airport into Steamboat/Hayden will operate on weekends from December 22 through March 24 utilizing a regional jet, CR7, capable of accommodating 66 passengers. The new nonstop flights will be available for sale to travelers beginning today, June 8th, and are scheduled as follows:










Los   Angeles

LAX 12:45p

HDN 4:20p

HDN 3:38p

LAX 5:28p





International travelers from Australia, one of Ski Town, USA’s top international markets, will enjoy one-stop connections in both directions with the new United Los Angeles service. For example, the United Sydney flight arrives in Los Angeles at 9:48am, allowing approximately 2-1/2 hours to clear customs and make the new flight to Steamboat at 12:45pm. On the return trip, depart Steamboat arriving LAX at 5:28pm; then enjoy ample time to connect to the Sydney departure at 10:15pm.


In addition to the new Los Angeles flight, United also offers daily nonstop winter service from Houston (IAH), Saturday nonstop winter service from Newark (EWR) and daily nonstop year-round service from Denver (DEN) into Steamboat, the most conveniently accessed ski resort in Colorado-just 22 miles/35kms from the resort.


Last season, the Steamboat/Hayden Airport completed the final portion of its $15 million improvement plan unveiling a new passenger arrival area, a second baggage carousel, full-service main level restaurant, walkway linking ticketing and bag claim, expanded TSA passenger security entry, improved concessions and passenger amenities including a large gas fireplace and panoramic window views.


Celebrating its 50th Anniversary this winter, Steamboat is famous worldwide for its authentic western atmosphere, friendliness, Olympian tradition and Champagne Powder snow. North America’s Top Family Resort, Steamboat-Ski Town, USA encompasses 165 trails, 3,668 vertical feet and nearly 3,000 skiable acres with six peaks filled with world-class groomed cruisers, bumps, steeps, meadows, legendary trees and four terrain parks.
