Mayor Bob Scott announced today the addition of United Express flights, operated by SkyWest Airlines, from Sioux Gateway Airport/Brigadier General Bud Day Field to Denver International Airport beginning on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. The once daily flights will be onboard 50-passenger CRJ200 jet aircraft.
In addition to being a great connecting hub for travelers heading west, Denver is also a top destination for Siouxland leisure and business travelers. From Denver, United provides 460 daily flights to more than 170 destinations.
Dave Bernstein, President of the Sioux Gateway Airport Board of Trustees said, “Denver, as a destination, will be a great addition to Chicago and Dallas. Denver has proven successful in the past and will provide yet another reason for travelers to choose Sioux City as their airport, regardless of where they are traveling to. In these challenging times Sioux City is the ideal airport to travel to and from as it is small, clean and not congested, making travel much safer and less stressful.”
“We are looking forward to the start of our new United Express flights in Sioux City and know our passengers can fly with confidence thanks to the additional measures being taken on every flight,” said Greg Atkin, SkyWest’s Managing Director of Market Development. “From enhanced cleaning, mandatory face coverings and customer self-assessments with check-in, we remain committed to the health and safety of all onboard our aircraft.”
Tickets can be purchased today by visiting the Sioux Gateway Airport website www.flysux.com, the United Airlines website www.united.com or by contacting your local travel agent.
Barbara Sloniker, Executive Vice President of The Siouxland Initiative, welcomed the news. “Today’s announcement is great news and is the result of a lengthy team effort and partnership between the public and private sector. Adding air service to Denver will definitely have a positive impact on our tri-state economic development initiatives.”
