JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board, JH Air Improvement Resources Board, and American Airlines announced yesterday that year-round air service from Jackson Hole to Dallas Fort Worth will begin next spring.
American Airlines said it will fly a daily CRJ700 from Dallas Fort Worth, TX to Jackson Hole, WY, during the spring and fall season to complement its A319 service during the summer and winter.
The governor, for one, was pleased with the announcement.
“Commercial air service is a significant factor in expanding and developing Wyoming’s economy,” said Governor Mead. “Entrepreneurs and businesses need quick access to markets and customers. Visitors want convenient access to their destination. Residents want the mobility air service provides. The addition by American Airlines of year-round service is a boon to Jackson and Wyoming. It is good news for our state.”
Chair of JH Air and state House Rep Mike Gierau said, “Adding American Airlines on a year-round basis should allow locals to feel the benefits of more choice when we move into the spring-fall timeframe. “The ability to fly the smaller regional jet aircraft during our shoulder seasons is the key to matching a strong, but lower capacity demand
Keely Herron, speaking on behalf of TTB, expressed his delight with the opportunity this may provide, for locals and for the folks trying to travel to Jackson during a time of very low air seat capacity.
“Daily year-round service on American will be a big benefit to Jackson locals as well as business travelers. The Travel and Tourism Board works to help even out seasonal ebbs and flows, and we look forward to supporting American Airlines, along with each of our airline partners flying service to Jackson during the spring and fall seasons.”
Spring and Fall service will be operated on a CR7.
The Spring 2018 schedule is tentatively:
Arrival: DFW 11:10am – JAC 12:58pm
Departure: JAC 1:35pm – DFW 5:17pm
