Who is United Express?

The new United Express flights in Riverton will be operated by SkyWest Airlines. SkyWest started in 1972 and is known for connecting small and medium-sized communities to the global aviation network.

SkyWest has approximately 2,500 daily departures (more flights than any other regional airline in the world) to over 250 cities with a fleet of nearly 500 aircraft. In 2018, SkyWest flew 38.8 million passengers, and in 2019 it was named one of “Fortune World’s” Most Admired Companies and ATW Regional Airline of the Year for the third time.

In the last 12 months, SkyWest scheduled 2,066 flights from Rock Springs, Laramie, and Gillette. Only four were cancelled due to controllable events (i.e. aircraft maintenance).

No. The last day of Denver Air Connection service at Riverton Regional Airport will be January 11, 2020.

You have two options:

1) Purchase a roundtrip ticket on united.com. The Denver-Riverton segment prior to January 12, 2020 will be with Denver Air Connection, and flights January 12, 2020 and after will be on United Express. This is one ticket, and checked bags will be transferred automatically.

2) Purchase a one-way ticket for your flight before January 12, 2020 on denverairconnection.com (if you’re going beyond Denver, purchase a roundtrip-ticket with your carrier of choice from Denver and back as well). Then purchase a one-way ticket on united.com to Riverton for any date after January 11, 2020. You will have to collect, then re-check any checked luggage in Denver. These flights are not linked together in case of delay, so plan adequate layover times.
