Aspen Airport Closure May 2021

The Aspen/ Pitkin County Airport is scheduled to CLOSE May 17 (2300L) -24th (0500L), 2021.

Last year the Aspen/ Pitkin County Airport attempted to procure and complete necessary pavement rehabilitation on the Runway, Taxiway, and apron surfaces. The challenges of the pandemic prevented that work from being completed.

 This year, to get the necessary and overdue work completed the county took a thoughtful approach to minimize economic and operational impacts on the community, businesses and airline schedules, and received feedback on a 7 day period that would have the least impact moving towards the 2021 summer. The week of May 17-24, 2021 was heavily vetted; and considered the risk of doing pavement work early in the summer season, which requires rising temperatures above 60F. 

The airport understands the impacts and inconvenience of such a closure and appreciates your patience and understanding.
