Edmonton -Today Edmonton Airports welcomed the inaugural non-stop Edmonton-Denver flight, which arrived from Denver on time at 12:50 p.m. Following a long-standing aviation tradition, airport fire trucks were positioned on either side of the arriving United Express CRJ to spray a water arch over top of the aircraft symbolizing a gesture of welcome to this new carrier making its debut in our community.

It was our way of saying…Welcome United Express!
