Record Number of Passengers Traveled Through Gillette's Airport in 2015

According to the Gillette-Campbell County Airport, traffic there in 2015 increased 20% from 2014. Over 62,000 people moved through the airport last year, compared to just over 50,000 passengers in 2014. The record for number of travelers was previously set in 2011. Flights to Denver increased 52% in 2015 from the previous year. United flies from Denver to Gillette, and Delta services a Salt Lake City / Gillette connection, but the addition of Jet service from Skywest Airlines last February is likely the source of the travel increase, according to Airport Director Jay Lundell. Gillette-Campbell County Airport was ranked #32 nationally according to statistics from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. #county17 #news
