Twin Falls, Idaho is just a two-hour flight from DIA.
DENVER — Daily nonstop jet service between Denver and southern Idaho is set to launch next month.
The two-hour route will be operated via United Express aboard SkyWest’s 50-passenger CRJ200 regional aircraft.
“We’re looking forward to the start of these new flights and providing travelers with more options and access to get anywhere they want to go,” said Greg Atkin, managing director of market development for SkyWest Airlines. “We also continue to utilize a multi-layered safety approach onboard every flight, including enhanced cleanings, mandatory face coverings, and more.”
The new service is supported by a U.S. Department of Transportation Small Community Air Service Development Program grant, which assists communities with small non-hub airports like Twin Falls’ Magic Valley Regional Airport to improve their air service.
