Getting to Denver International Airport from Fort Collins and Northern Colorado could be getting easier this year. Thanks to a new program that will be tested later this year at the Fort Collins-Loveland Airport. Soon, you might be able to go through security, check bags and board a bus to DIA and be taken to a secure location to board your flight. The novel program will be the first in the country. If the wingless flight operation is successful, it could be replicated in other markets. Sound good?

Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport would be the first airport in the nation to test the wingless flight model that could ease the hassle of traveling out of DIA, Reester said.

Airport officials hope to take the first test runs in the third quarter, gauging travel time, security issues on a bus in transit - what happens to security if the bus breaks down - and other operational questions, Licon said in an interview.
