Inaugural Jet Service Celebration
On June 1, 2015, for the first time since 1978, the Yellowstone Airport welcomes back commercial jet service. Delta connections, operated by SkyWest replaced their 30-seat turboprop aircraft with 50-seat CRJ200’s (Canadair Regional Jet 200) which will increase the number of passengers by an estimated 30% this season. The increased traffic should provide a boost for the local economy and also make traveling easier and more comfortable than ever before.
