Jet service returns to Yellowstone Airport

Posted: Updated:
WEST YELLOWSTONE - West Yellowstone is a big tourist destination for southwest Montana and now travelers will be able to arrive in the small gateway town of Yellowstone National Park even faster. 

The Yellowstone Airport has expanded and is now offering daily jet flights from West Yellowstone to Salt Lake City. The flights will be operated by SkyWest airlines.


There will be two daily flights Thursday through Monday and one daily flight on Tuesday and Wednesday


"It's been about a three year endeavor for the airport, working closely with the FAA and the park service and the surrounding community," said Yellowstone Airport manager Jeff Kadlec. 

It has been more than 30 years since the last jet air carrier served the airport. Each of the new jet flights from Salt Lake City to West Yellowstone will be onboard the 50- seat Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ200).


"The jets bring a new product to the West Yellowstone community. A faster, more comfortable ride, and then seamless Delta connection access to the Delta network from Salt Lake City and worldwide," said Mike Ostler of SkyWest Airlines. 

Local business leaders are also hopeful the new jet service will provide a boost to the West Yellowstone economy. 


"People who fly in tend to stay overnight, often many nights in a row. And then they tend to eat their meals out, they tend to participate in all the activities in the area," said Chamber of Commerce director Marysue Costello.
