Great Lakes Bus Service to DIA Delayed
Laramie, Wy – Great Lakes Airlines is still waiting on the Transportation Security Administration to approve its bus service from Cheyenne and Laramie to the Denver International Airport.
The airline hopes to start the service between January and April. But the delay is costing Great Lakes money.
The first-of-its-kind airport to airport bus service was announced in October and was supposed to start last month. But according to Great Lakes Marketing and Planning Vice President, Dave Thomas, for unknown reasons, the TSA hasn't signed off on the plan. Thomas says not getting speedy approval came as a surprise.
Over 300 people made bus reservations and Great Lakes plans to take a loss and convert those into plane tickets. Thomas says it's frustrating that this plan to make the airline money will end up costing them in the short-term.
