JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
AIR SERVICE BUILDS ON SUCCESSES

JACKSON HOLE, WY July 17, 2012: Following a successful winter season, JH AIR is pleased to announce the expansion of winter air service to nine non-stop cities, including three new cities, during the 2012-13 Winter Season.

New service will be provided by United Airlines from Newark and San Francisco, coupled with new winter service by Delta Air Lines from Minneapolis.

“The increase in service is a testament to the history, demand and faith our business community established with the airlines, beginning with our first Minimum Revenue Guarantee agreement in 1986, resulting in American Airlines non-stop service from Chicago”, stated Mike Gierau, Chair JH AIR. “Our business community, with the support from the State of Wyoming, has been exemplary in their leadership of contracting and managing air service. In addition, and critical to the contracting of service is the investment in our destination experience by the major resorts such as Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. And finally, the commitment by our community, our resorts and hoteliers, and of course the Wyoming Office of Tourism to promote air service, ensures Jackson Hole, WY continues to be recognized as a world class destination resort on a year round basis.”

The new winter service will complement service provided by American Airlines from Dallas Fort Worth, Delta Air Lines from Atlanta and Salt Lake City, and United Airlines from Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles – allowing for non-stop flights from a total of nine cities.

Gierau continued, “Our approach has been to identify the most active hubs to serve both domestic and international clients, and scheduling flights with our airline partners to ensure smooth, same day connections from North and South America, UK, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. The added benefit is extraordinary sustainable air service for a community of 20,000 people.

We look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a world-class resort destination, gateway to the Nation’s first National Park (Yellowstone), and the splendor of Grand Teton National Park” concluded Gierau.
