Airport-New Flight

Rapid City airport pursuing daily nonstop flight to Phoenix


The Associated Press - July 17, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Rapid City Regional Airport has received nearly $1 million in federal and local grant money to pursue a daily nonstop flight to Phoenix.

The grant money includes $700,000 from the federal Transportation Department's Small Community Air Service Development Program.

Airport Executive Director Patrick Dame says the grant allows for a revenue guarantee for a flight to Phoenix, though it doesn't guarantee that will actually materialize. The airport will set up a meeting with American Airlines, but there's no timetable.

Dame says a Phoenix flight would provide Rapid City travelers with better connections to the West Coast.
