Yellowstone Regional Airport earns FAA honor
By Business Report Staff

CODY – Yellowstone Regional Airport was one of a select group of airports to receive a recognition award during the recent FAA Northwest Mountain Region Airports Conference in Seattle. The region consists of eight states.

The FAA presented the award to the Yellowstone Regional Airport in recognition of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) in construction of the new passenger terminal building in Cody. The project was made possible through support from the FAA and the Wyoming Division of Aeronautics.

Airport Manager Bob Hooper thanked John Bauer and Marc Miller of the FAA Denver Airports District Office along with Dennis Byrne and his staff at the Wyoming Division of Aeronautics. Hooper also acknowledged the airport’s engineering group, Morrison-Maierle Inc. for their commitment to the project, which took approximately five years to complete at a cost of $12.5 million.

The Yellowstone Regional Airport serves nearly 56,000 passengers yearly and is served year-round by United Express and Sky West/Delta Connection. The airport and its tenants currently employ approximately 63 people.
