New Bus Service Will Link Fort Collins-DIA-Breckenridge
Fort Collins travelers, rejoice. There's a new easy wingless way to get to Denver International Airport.
United Airlines announced on Friday (Feb. 26) that they'll be making it easier for customers to travel to Breckenridge and Fort Collins by introducing convenient, year-round ground transportation service connecting through its Denver hub (DIA).
There will be four trips daily from Fort Collins to DIA starring in April. Customers can check in their bags with the service and will be delivered right to the United gates in concourse A.
The Breckenridge to DIA service, meanwhile, will begin in March.
According to the press release from World Airline News, this is the first time Breckenridge has ever been served by an airline and will be Fort Collins’ first global network carrier service in 25 years.
United is teaming up with Landline — a premium ground transportation company — to offer a connecting service to these popular destinations through the Denver International Airport.
Beginning today (Feb. 26), customers can book their travel on united.com, selecting Breckenridge or Fort Collins as their destination.
“United’s new service from Denver to Breckenridge and Fort Collins is just one example of how we are identifying opportunities to innovate our route network to get people where they want to go with ease and convenience,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning and Scheduling.
“Our customers tell us that national parks and ski destinations are important to them and we are proud to partner with Landline to offer a unique, seamless way to help them get there.”
As part of the new transportation service, customers can lounge in spacious leather seating while engaging with entertainment options like onboard streaming entertainment and free Wi-Fi.
“With this new service, customers can start their day anywhere in United’s global network and arrive slope side in Breckenridge minutes from the main gondola,” said Landline’s co-founder & CEO David Sunde. “At the same time, in Fort Collins we are creating global connectivity for the first time in 25 years."
Both United and Landline have made the commitment to ensure the well-being of all customers; in doing so, they will be implementing a wide variety of cleaning and safety measures as part of the new service — all of which have been reviewed by the Cleveland Clinic.
Some of these measures include:
- Reducing seat capacity on Landline’s service to enable social distancing onboard
- Requiring mandatory use of masks onboard for customers aged two and over
- Electrostatically spraying ahead of each departure and sanitizing high touch areas
- Providing United CleanPlus sanitizing wipes to each customer
- Requiring customers to complete a ‘Ready to Fly’ checklist at check-in, acknowledging they don’t have symptoms for COVID-19 and agreeing to follow proper policies
