Nope, it’s closer to Telluride. That’s why some airlines market it as Montrose/Telluride. Aspen is around a 3 hour drive from Montrose, while it’s only an hour and a half drive to Telluride.

I definitely think this is in response to WN starting service here. It will be interesting to see what goes down.

I think Southwest and JetBlue both somehow added Montrose at around the same time. Media sites in the area knew about JetBlue launching Montrose on the same day Southwest added MTJ to its route map last week:

JetBlue never formally announced it until today though.

Telluride rules! But still montrose is the perfect airport to grow, it’s equidistant from almost very colorado resort! Great choice JetBlue

This is fascinating! As most other airlines cut routes, half their staff, and retire whole types in their fleet, JetBlue and also United are growing their networks! I see strong airline recovery in our future!
