This news complements the Colorado Springs Airport’s on-going efforts to enhance the customer experience for those who choose to fly from COS. Business travelers have already taken advantage of the recently relocated close-in valet drop-off area and premium security screening lane. To add even more value, COS initiated a program earlier this summer to reward those who shop and dine at the Airport with free parking.
Later this summer, the Airport will introduce a new Premier Lounge to make passengers’ waits at COS even more comfortable and a loyalty program to reward Airport users with airline miles.
