American Airlines has round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Aspen, Colorado (ASE) for $267, NONSTOP. Flights August, September, November and December. Departure Blackout Dec 14 – Dec 31. Fare is reversible.

Note: This is the first time we’ve seen Fall / Winter nonstops to Aspen under $370. Flights to Aspen usually price around $400 to $500.

Update: United was matching with a cheaper price, but inferior routing (1-stop) on TUE/WED/SAT. I’ve listed some example dates below. Those fares are gone for now.

I was able to pull up this fare on Priceline, and it should be available on all of the major booking sites for now. Screenshot taken at 07:17 PM on 08/04/16.


If you plan on booking a hotel, use our travel coupon codes to save up to 15% to 20% off. Alternatively, you may be able to save the most money by booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on PricelineOrbitz, or Travelocity.

If you want to see other deals that are still bookable you should check out the “Bookable Deals” page on our site. It filters out deals that have expired, or have low availability.

Note: OTAs such as Orbitz, Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Travelocity, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “Free Cancellation within 24 hours” next to the checkout button.

Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
