Additional Flights Coming to Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport

Oct. 9, 2018

For the 21st consecutive month, Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport experienced significant passenger growth in September. In an effort to accommodate this increased demand, SkyWest Airlines has added a 2nd flight to Denver on Saturdays starting on November 3rd and added additional flights the week of Thanksgiving.

Through the 1st nine months of 2018, RKS has served 34,322 passengers, a 27.8 percent increase over the same period in 2017. September saw a significant increase of 30.43 percent to continue pushing the annual increase higher.

“It is an exciting time for our community as our customers have proven that there is a demand for increased air service in Southwest Wyoming,” said Devon Brubaker, airport director, in a statement. “SkyWest Airlines has been a great partner to our community for many years and they have once again stepped up and dedicated limited resources to our community in a time where the airline industry is starved for pilots and regional aircraft.”
