Republic Airways plans to continue operating three Bombardier Q400 turboprops from Denver this winter, reversing earlier plans to dismantle the fleet completely. As a result, Republic intends to continue to connect Denver with Aspen until at least April. Republic in February announced plans to replace all 11 Bombardier Q400s flown by its Lynx Airlines subsidiary with Embraer E170s and E190s. However, it experienced trouble “remarketing” all the high-speed turboprops, leading to the decision to continue flying three of them–to Aspen, Durango and Colorado Springs–while it folds Lynx into the Republic certificate. Republic originally planned to cease its Denver to Aspen service on September 31.
