Here’s a report that Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, the small airport that serves corporate and private jets in the Denver area, is preparing for the huge influx of those arriving for the convention by private jet:
BROOMFIELD, Colo.— Denver AirCenter, Denver’s executive FBO located at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, is busily preparing for the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Denver this August. The DNC is expected to bring thousands of travelers to the area, many of whom will arrive on private and corporate aircraft that will land at Denver AirCenter.
The FBO, or fixed based operator, has established a DNC private air travel hotline at 800-525-8139 to field travel and planning questions from people coming to the convention via private, corporate and charter aircraft.
Denver AirCenter is also staffing up to ensure the seamless delivery of the concierge-level passenger and pilot services for which the FBO is known.
“We are anticipating an influx of aircraft looking for the closest landing spot to DNC activities and downtown Denver come August,” said Laura Turner, general manager. “No other airport offers a quicker trip to downtown Denver. We know that busy conventioneers will appreciate that the drive between Denver AirCenter and the DNC is much faster than traveling on the clogged routes between other airports and downtown.”
So much for going green and flying commercial.
