CODY, Wyo. (AP) — SkyWest Airlines says it will use a federal subsidy to continue service between Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody and Salt Lake City.
The Powell Tribune reports (http://goo.gl/KNzKR ) that SkyWest will offer one daily flight during the winter months this winter and next winter. Flying for Delta Air Lines, SkyWest will receive a $352,000 subsidy from the federal Essential Air Service program.
As in the past, SkyWest says it will continue making morning and afternoon flights in the summer without a subsidy.
The Essential Air Service program guarantees small airports, such as Yellowstone Regional, two commercial flights per day to a major hub like Salt Lake City.
For the next two winters, SkyWest will fly a Canadair Regional Jet 200 (CRJ200) turbojet that holds 50 passengers.
