Delta Airlines will add an additional round-trip weekend flight between the Casper/Natrona County International Airport and Salt Lake City from June 11 to Sept. 4, airport manager Glenn Januska said Friday.
“The additional flight will occur on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer months, the peak months for leisure travel,” Januska said.
Departures from Casper will be at 6 a.m., 11:35 a.m. and 5:40 p.m.
Arrivals to Casper will be at 11:20 a.m., 5 p.m. and 11:10 p.m.
Like the current flights, Delta will use an Embraer 30-passenger turboprop, Januska said.
“We’re happy that this capacity is being added to our market at a time when most communities are seeing decreases in available seats,” he said.
Whether the additional flight will affect fares remains to be seen, Januska said. “In theory, we could see some reaction.”
The increased supply may push fares lower, but a high demand for those 30 extra seats may not have an effect, he said.
“It’s just hard to tell,” Januska said.
