Commercial flights will be allowed to land and take off from Aspen/Pitkin County Airport starting tomorrow, Wednesday 7/11/2018 at 7 am as the Lake Christine fire is further contained. The Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) remains in effect but an FAA-approved modification has allowed commercial operations to resume unless fire-fighting fixed-wing operations are active in the TFR. 

As many as 40 flights are scheduled to arrive and depart from the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport beginning Wednesday. Travelers are advised to contact their airlines for the most up-to-date flight information or go to for online arrival and departure information.

The TFR that was implemented at the outset of the Lake Christine fire will remain in effect until the threat of the spreading wildfire is over. It is essential to clear air traffic in the vicinity of the fire for aerial firefighting operations. Flights could once again be canceled or delayed as needed by the firefighting operation.
