From the Rockies to the Atlantic! Southwest Airlines will begin Saturday service between Charleston International Airport (CHS) and Denver International Airport (DEN) this summer. The weekly, nonstop flight begins on June 11, 2016.
“Denver has quietly been an objective from the early days of Southwest Airlines’ service to Charleston. The market has grown to become the largest city pair without nonstop service,” said Helen T. Hill, chief executive officer of the Charleston Area CVB. “It is our hope, and, in fact, our belief, that the Saturday service will become daily shortly after we have proven the market’s viability to our friends at Southwest Airlines. This is our opportunity, and I fully expect the hospitality industry to respond enthusiastically.”
Flights from Denver are scheduled to arrive in Charleston just in time to enjoy dinner at one of the Charleston area’s many acclaimed restaurants.
Southwest’s CHS to DEN schedule is:
Depart from Charleston: 3:45 PM | Arrive in Denver 5:20 PM
Depart from Denver: 10:55 AM | Arrive in Charleston: 4:15 PM
Southwest added daily service between Dallas Love Field and Charleston International Airport earlier this year. The Denver route is the latest addition to the airline’s growth in Charleston.
