American Airlines starts service between Cheyenne, DFW

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - American Airlines is now providing once-daily nonstop service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Cheyenne after the city went more than seven months without commercial air service.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports the service operated by SkyWest Airlines started Sunday, with each Bombardier CRJ200 regional jet able to seat about 50 passengers.

Cheyenne has been without commercial air service since late March, when Great Lakes Airlines suspended all turboprop flights.

The Cheyenne Regional Air Focus Team signed a one-year contract with SkyWest this summer, guaranteeing a minimum revenue of $2.3 million.

SkyWest didn't release the latest booking numbers, but company spokeswoman McKall Morris says, "We are really encouraged with the support we are seeing so far."
