|Sunset at Denver Airport on United 737|
Denver isn’t the cheapest airport and there isn’t a close alternative (COS is 2 hours drive, but the fares aren’t great there either). There are a few flights to Oslo or Stockholm for about 6.5c per mile flown. Not bad, but not great. I haven’t been to either city, so I’m tempted to book. The price is a little high for just the miles and the fare has a two night stay required. I wouldn’t mind a short vacation, but I’d rather go when it’s warm and there is sunlight.

Domestic flights aren’t any cheaper from Denver; I’m looking at 8c a mile. There are some cheap transcon flights (BOS-SNA for 4.5c / mi), but I’d need to reposition to a coast and that’s not cost effective unless I fly a few round trips. There aren’t any cheap day trips out there, so very frustrating. I guess I’ll go back to ITA Matrix and search some more.
