Hatch Announces Jet Service for Cedar City Airport



U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) applauded the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recent approval for scheduled jet service in and out of the Cedar City Airport. Hatch became involved in January after they were contacted by local leaders about significant delays at the FAA. With this approval the airport can now make preparations for 12 weekly flights between Cedar City and Salt Lake City airports. The route will be operated by St. George-based SkyWest starting on June 1, 2012.

“Jet service in and out of Cedar City will not only strengthen the connection between Northern and Southern Utah, it will also make Cedar City more accessible to people from around the country and beyond,” Hatch said. “People come to Cedar from around the world every summer for the Shakespearean Festival and to visit SUU, and scheduled jet service will make the experience for our guests even better. I appreciate the willingness of the FAA to listen to our concerns and applaud this important step forward.”
