Wyoming’s largest city will soon have a working commercial airport again.
United Airlines is adding a daily flight between Cheyenne and Denver starting on November 11. The United flight, operated by SkyWest Airlines, will fly to Denver in the morning and return to Cheyenne in the evening.
According to United’s website, flyers can buy tickets on the Denver-Cheyenne route for as low as $42 one-way.
Wendy Volk, president of the Cheyenne Regional Air Focus Team, welcomed Sunday’s news.
“This is a wonderful restoration of our freedom to enjoy the convenience of flying from home. And it’s just in time for the holidays,” Volk said.
“It’s also a validation of the fact that, for 18 months after opening the new terminal, Cheyenne had the fastest-growing small airport in the country. The people supported and showed they truly want air service here,” she said.
The upcoming Cheyenne flight is subsidized under the federal government’s essential air service program. SkyWest previously served the city from Dallas/Fort Worth for American Airlines but appears to be switching the service to United.
