Rejoice Ark-La-Tex travelers! Those daily non-stop flights to Denver that went away during the pandemic are making a comeback.

I personally am thrilled because my best friend lives in Denver and the last time I flew out to visit her I had a layover in Dallas-Fort Worth. What could have been a 2 1/2 hour flight turned into 5 1/2 hours. I remember feeling like the precious time I could be spending with my friend was instead spent waiting on a connecting flight.

According to a news release from the Shreveport Airport Authority connecting flights to Denver won't be necessary starting October 31st.

Right now you can catch a non-top flight to Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Orlando Destin, Charlotte, and Las Vegas. According to Shreveport Regional Airport direct flights to Denver resume on Sunday, October 31st.

If you're thinking that nonstop flights to Denver are nothing new, you're right. Kind of.

The direct flights came to a screeching halt when the pandemic swept through the nation and several people halted their travel plans. We have seen so many flight attendants and pilots go through furloughs and in some very sad cases layoffs. This is good news.

You can start planning your next Denver trip now.

The non-stop flights are already on sale at United.com. United Airlines will be the airline that operates the non-stop flights with a 50-seat Embraer-145 regional jet.
