American Airlines will provide daily nonstop service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Cheyenne after the Wyoming city went more than seven months without commercial air service.
The service operated by American Eagle affiliate SkyWest Airlines started Sunday, and each Bombardier CRJ200 regional jet can seat about 50 passengers, The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported.
Cheyenne has been without commercial service since late March, when Great Lakes Airlines suspended all turboprop flights.
The daily flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport departs at 9:30 a.m. and arrives in Cheyenne at 10:50 a.m., all times local. The flight from Cheyenne departs at 11:20 am and arrives in Dallas at 2:20 p.m., all times local.
The flights also will test the airport’s new $18.5 million terminal.
