Gillette Airport

Passengers board a plane destined for Denver. August enplanements were up 18% from August 2018. Starting Oct. 6, daily round-trip flights to Denver will increase to three a day under a new statewide air service agreement that includes the local airport.

Thanks to a very strong August, traffic at the Gillette-Campbell County Airport is up 1% over 2018, and it should continue to increase when Gillette gets a third daily flight next month.

August had 5,457 passengers, up from the 4,635 in August 2018, an 18% increase. It’s the highest monthly total since June 2018.
