American Airlines has announced it will provide year-round service to Jackson Hole.
Beginning in the spring of 2018, the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board announced American will fly a daily CR 1700 aircraft from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas to Jackson. It will complement the airline’s A319 service during the summer and winter.
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead applauded the decision, saying, “Commercial air service is a significant factor in expanding and developing Wyoming’s economy. 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.”
JH Travel and Tourism Board spokesperson Keely Herron said the service would be a big benefit to Jackson locals as well as business travelers.
“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 time frame,” 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. 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”.
American has announced its planned spring schedule:
Departure Depart Time Arrival Arrival Time
DFW 11:10 JAC 12:58
JAC 13:35 DFW 17:17
