Another milestone for air service

Passengers disembark the inaugural United Express flight Wednesday night from Denver to Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey. United Airlines last winter committed to offering daily, nonstop flights between Denver and the Hailey airport. The seasonal United Express flights will operate once per day between the two cities through Aug. 25, and then will operate five times per week from Aug. 26 through Sept. 23. The flights will be operated for United Express by Utah-based SkyWest Airlines using 70-seat Canadair CRJ 700 regional jets, the same aircraft United Express uses for its flight route between Hailey and San Francisco. Fly Sun Valley Alliance Executive Director Carol Waller told the Friedman Memorial Airport Authority board on Tuesday that bookings on the flight are a little lower than hoped for, but that many passengers are using it to connect with other cities, which was the goal of securing the flight.
