COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Officials at the Colorado Springs Airport are launching a campaign to attract more air traffic after the number of flights tumbled to a 22-year low.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reported city officials are looking at other airports close to large regional hubs, like Tucson.

The departure of Frontier Airlines next month will cut passenger traffic at the airport by 16 percent, according to a report released Wednesday. Many passengers are turning to Denver International Airport, where they have more choices.
