Cody airport passenger numbers fly up in 2014

Cody's airport had the highest number of passengers ever recorded last year.

“It was a record year for the Yellowstone Regional Airport,” said the airport’s manager, Bob Hooper.

The airport boarded 32,301 passengers in 2014, exceeding 2013 by 4.2 percent.

A total of 63,634 passengers traveled through the airport last year.

Airport officials attribute the increase in passenger numbers to ticket prices that are kept competitive with out-of-state airports and a focus on offering convenient flight schedules for vacation travelers during the heavy summer tourism season. The addition of a new non-stop flight to Chicago on Sundays during the peak tourist season also was a major factor in the increased passenger numbers.

Yellowstone Regional Airport also pitches its complimentary free parking and the conveniences offered in the new terminal building, like an efficient check-in process, state-of-the-art security screening and Norma’s Mexican Restaurant.

The airport offers daily jet service on United Express to Denver and Delta Connection to Salt Lake City. In addition, five major car rental companies are available at the airport.
