SkyWest Airlines will begin operation at Canyonlands Field Airport on March 2.
“SkyWest already provides extensive air service options for passengers across the state, and we look forward to providing direct air service to Salt Lake City for those living in Eastern Utah,” said Mike Thompson, SkyWest Airlines vice president. “With the convenience of these new flights, it is a great time to fly local in Moab.”
Each of the new flights from Moab have been timed to provide maximum connection opportunities in Salt Lake City. With 260 daily flights in Salt Lake to more than 80 destinations, including New York and Washington, D.C., it is easy for passengers to get anywhere they want to go, Thompson said.
There will be two daily round-trips from Salt Lake to Canyonlands Field Thursday through Monday. One daily round-trip from Salt Lake to Canyonlands Field will be available on Tuesday as Wednesdays.
“We’re super excited to have SkyWest providing service,” said Kelly Braun, the airport manager at Canyonlands Field Airport. “We look forward to future success.”
The schedule for the flights on Thursday through Monday will have a morning departure from Salt Lake at 9:40 a.m. to arrive at Canyonlands Field at 10:43 a.m. The morning flight from Canyonlands Field leaves at 11:10 a.m. to arrive in Salt Lake at 12:19 p.m.
The afternoon flight leaves Salt Lake at 1:45 p.m. to arrive at Canyonlands Field at 2:48 p.m. The afternoon flight leaving Canyonlands Field is at 3:05 p.m., with an arrival in Salt Lake at 4:14 p.m.
