New year-round air service on American Airlines is exactly the kind of logistical and infrastructure support that will benefit Chamber members.

The Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board, JH Air Improvement Resources Board and American Airlines announced t year-round air service to Jackson Hole. Beginning Spring 2018, American Airlines will fly a daily CRJ700 from Dallas Fort Worth, complementing their A319 service during the summer and winter.

“Commercial air service is a significant factor in expanding and developing Wyoming’s economy,” said Governor  Matt 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.”

Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Anna Olson said, “The new year-round air service on American Airlines is exactly the kind of logistical and infrastructure support that will benefit our members. It’s incredible to live as regionally remotely as we do and have year round air service from three main airlines to three major domestic hubs. More flexibility, choice and service are going to help incoming or outgoing business travelers, small conference business opportunities and be a great new option for those on leisure trips too.”

“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,” stated Mike Gierau, Chair JH AIR. “The ability to fly the smaller Regional Jet aircraft during our shoulder seasons is the key to matching a strong, but lower capacity demand,” continued Gierau.  “The Spring/Fall service (April/May and October/November/early December) will complete the year-round air service for American Airlines. We know our community has been asking for increased, year-round options, they love to travel for work and pleasure and being able to use a consistent loyalty program year round is a plus”.

Keely Herron, speaking on behalf of the JH Travel & Tourism Board, expressed their 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 & 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”, concluded Herron.

Spring and Fall service will be operated on a CR7.
