Pocatello Regional Airport adds additional flight times

POCATELLO, Idaho — The Pocatello Regional Airport has added more flight times to their schedule.

SkyWest Airlines, which operates as the Delta Connection to Salt Lake City, recently announced it will offer a fourth daily flight Sunday through Friday and a third flight Saturdays beginning March 1, according to news release from the City of Pocatello.

“We’re ecstatic that SkyWest is continuing to expand in the Pocatello market,” said David Allen, Pocatello Regional Airport Manager. “The new flights will connect passengers to 32 domestic cities on the 5 p.m. bank of departures from Salt Lake City, which is one of the most popular connecting banks. Almost all of our top 15 destinations are available plus many others such as Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Boston.”

Airport officials say tickets for the new flights will be available for purchase starting January 14.

“The new flights are another reason why you should always, always check Pocatello when you’re making your travel plans,” Allen said. “We offer competitive fares that beat Idaho Falls and often beat Salt Lake, especially when you consider the true costs of driving in terms of money and time. We also offer a convenience that only comes from a small airport – fast, friendly service that gets your trip started right.”

This is the second time since 2016 Sky West has added a flight, according to the City of Pocatello. Airport officials say the most recently announced flight additions will represent an 35 percent increase in services for travelers.
