DENVER (AP) - Republic Airways Holdings has warned the state of its plans to lay off 158 workers and
close down its operations at Denver International Airport.
The Denver Post reports that the Indiana-based company says it plans to end its Denver operations by Oct. 1. The company, in a notice filed with the Colorado Department of Labor last week, didn't provide details on what types of jobs will leave DIA.
The regional carrier flies to more than 100 cities for major companies, including American Airlines and Delta Airlines. It is one of several regional operators flying United Express routes from DIA, providing services to 13 cities total.
DIA spokesman Health Montgomery says other regional carriers offer flights to those cities, which include Aspen, Steamboat and Dallas, and service won't be affected.
