Great Lakes Suspending All Flights at Cheyenne Regional Airport

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - The only air carrier in Cheyenne is suspending all flights to and from Cheyenne Regional Airport.

Great Lakes sent out a press release at 12:00 am Tuesday morning that all scheduled flights are suspended. Also saying if customers have already purchased tickets, they need to call their original booking source for a refund.

The company says they are not entering bankruptcy, but would not make any further comment as of Tuesday.

At this point it is still unclear how many people could lose their jobs because of this.

But the director at Cheyenne Regional Airport is still hopeful about the future and the new terminal.

"We might not have air service right now but that's not always going to be the same," Tim Barth. "But we will have air service."

Cheyenne Regional Airport has 90 days to secure a replacement carrier or TSA will leave, and it can take up to 6 months to re-establish the checkpoint.

For now, Great Lakes says they are only operating flights from Denver to South Dakota.
