The airline launched in 1997. In the beginning, it only flew cargo flights, mainly flying throughout the Rocky Mountain region. However, with the launch of Denver Air Connection, it turned to scheduled flights and has grown its network out. Today, the airline has the largest single feeder aircraft network in the U.S and has also established itself as a recognisable scheduled airline with Denver Air Connection, as well as a thriving passenger air charter service under the Key Lime Air brand.
Key Lime Air is based at Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colorado, which positions the airline perfectly to offer a convenient service to the West Coast, Central or East Coast of the United States. As well as operating widely to destinations across the U.S, the airline also flies to Canada and beyond. The airline flies to all these destinations as a charter but as of yet, not on a scheduled basis.
