United Airlines will be flying Airbus A319 between Denver International airport and Durango starting on March 26. The 126 passenger aircraft seats almost double the regular aircrafts that come in and out of the airport currently operated by United and American Airlines.

The Airbus will be utilized on only one of the five flights to and from Denver. Tony Vicari is the Aviation Director at Durango La Plata County Airport. He says the addition of the Airbus is showing that United is seeing a demand for travel to southwest Colo.
