I was debating whether to publish this as a “Who the F*&# is” post or a Cranky Flier Interview, but after hearing Jon talk about his company, I thought audio was the way to go. But the question still remains… who the f*&# is Denver Air Connection?
Denver Air Connection is the passenger-facing brand for Key Lime Air, a proud operator of Metroliners, Dornier 328 Jets, and Embraer regionals. It’s not easy being a little guy, but Denver Air Connection has come up with a pretty interesting plan to get pilots onboard, teach them how to fly, and save the industry… or something like that.
I spoke with Jon Coleman, head of business development for the airline — and a pilot — about what the company is doing to keep growing in a time that is not easy for small operators.
Enjoy our discussion, and if you’ve been on the airline, let’s heard about it.
