LARAMIE, Wyo. — SkyWest Airlines will begin offering flights at Laramie Regional Airport beginning Nov. 4.
Airport manager Jack Skinner says the St. George, Utah-based airline will offer a new schedule, larger aircraft, more reliability and lower fares than Great Lakes Airlines, which has been servicing the city since 1998. Cheyenne-based Great Lakes will no longer operate out of the airport.
Skinner says regular travelers have complained they missed their connections in Denver because of "quite a few" delays and cancellations with Great Lakes.
Great Lakes typically offered three flights daily, but SkyWest will offer two — one in the morning and one later in the day. Skinner says the departure flights are timed to offer passengers as many connecting flights as possible out of Denver International Airport.
