Great Lakes Airlines Leaving Cody Sunday

Cody, WY – After Sunday, travelers who use Cody's Yellowstone Regional Airport will no longer be able to take flights to Denver. Great Lakes Airlines is pulling out of Cody, leaving travelers with only one option: SkyWest service to Salt Lake City. Airport Manager Mike Becker admits it will hurt not to be able to offer flights to Denver. But given the poor quality of service he says Great Lakes has provided, he doesn't think the impact will be too drastic because travelers have been flocking away from Great Lakes for the past year. Efforts are underway to have United Express run a Cody to Denver route. Becker says those talks are going well, but there is no contract on the table yet. Becker believes a deal will get done shortly, but says having flights to Denver this winter probably isn't realistic.
