Cody Air Grant Gets Initial Nod

Cheyenne, WY – A Cody air service group is a step closer to receiving state money for United Express winter flights to Denver. The Wyoming Aeronautics Commission approved a 190 thousand dollar grant application Tuesday, forwarding it to the Wyoming Business Council for a final decision. This is the second application for Cody, while Jackson and Casper also have received state air service funds. Aeronautics Administrator Shelly Reams believes there will be interest from all over the state should the program continue. Reams says she's already heard from a number of Wyoming communities interested in improving passenger air service. The Wyoming Business Council could look at the Cody application at its meeting next month, or perhaps sooner.
