Worland Courts Another Air Carrier
Worland, WY – Worland officials are considering contracting with a new airline after meeting with Mesa Airlines representatives. Kenrick Bates is Director of Community Affairs and Market Planning for the Phoenix-based airline. He says Mesa is interested in obtaining a federal Essential Air Service contract to serve Worland, as well as Laramie, Rock Springs and possibly Evanston. Cheyenne-based Great Lakes Airlines currently has an Essential Air Service grant to serve Worland. But Worland officials are considering other options after Great Lakes' decision to pull out of the Cody airport November 30th. Airport Manager Gary Thompson says the city has not had problems with Great Lakes. But he says Mesa offers stability.
