US Regional Airport Eyes Downturn of Operations Starting July Due to Pilot Shortage

13th May 2022

With the recent announcement of Delta Airlines that it will no longer serve Yellowstone Regional Airport (YRA), the latter eyes downturn in activities starting in July which, ironically, in the past years, was its peak. Flights in the airport will drop to only 3 per day, totaling to only 21 flights inbound and outbound per week with Denver as the only destination.

“I’m sure it’s … the crew, resources and availability of pilots […] It’s an ongoing battle that I’m working on with the airlines at this time,” said YRA Director Aaron Buck said during a YRA board meeting on April 13.
