Yellowstone Regional Airport Sees Lower But Consistent Numbers
Written by andrew-rossi on July 1, 2020
Numbers aren’t exactly soaring at Yellowstone Regional Airport, but they’re consistent.
Now that both Delta and United are offering their seasonal regional service to Yellowstone Regional, more people are flying into Cody. The latest numbers from the week of June 22nd thru the 28th had 243 passengers – 65 on the 3 weekly Delta flights (offered Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday) and 178 on United flights (on every day but Thursday.) These numbers are below the numbers the airport management has come to expect – a little over 50% of last year’s, actually – but that’s not to say things aren’t “looking up.” More flights will be offered in July which will certainly increase the total number of passengers.
All things considered; Yellowstone Regional Airport has been weathering the pandemic fairly well. In addition to the steadily increasing passenger numbers, public officials and the public at large were able to attend the final review of the airport’s master plan, which will see the continued expansion of the airport’s services and amenities. This will certainly be buoyed by the millions available thru the CARES Act, which will be utilized by airport in a myriad of ways over the next few years.
A public hearing on the proposed budget for the next fiscal year – ending June 30th, 2021 – for the will be held next Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 7:45 a.m. in the Yellowstone Regional Airport Board Room.
