Wyoming panel OKs air service plan for executive review

July 13, 2018

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A panel created to attract commercial air service to Wyoming has come up with a draft plan.

At a meeting Thursday in Riverton, the Wyoming Air Service Improvement Council voted to approve a draft plan for landing an air carrier that would provide up to three daily flights to and from Denver from airports that join the agreement.

The council was established earlier this year by the Wyoming Legislature.

Through the program, the state would offer minimum revenue guarantees for a capacity purchase agreement with an airline.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that the council agreed on a profit-sharing framework, where communities that opt in would share 40 percent of the cost and eventual profit with the state.

The council’s plan will be reviewed by Gov. Matt Mead and lawmakers.
