CO has flown many Western ski season routes from EWR over the years, Montrose/Telluride, Hayden/Steamboat Springs, Vail etc.. This is the first time EWR is getting flights to Jackson Hole.

This and the recently added Bozeman flights are nice unique additions to EWR thanks to the merger.

Legacy UA had a strong presence in JAC. ORD, SFO, IAH are all currently served. Nice to see EWR added and I wonder what kind of aircraft it will see. Likely 319/320, but I wouldn't be shocked to see a 757 on the route.

What ever happened with EWR-BZN?

Was that service ever initiated?

IIRC, they fly it on weekends with a 320.

Also both LAX and DEN have service as well. Both LAX and SFO seem to get a CR7s, both ORD and IAH are 752s, and DEN is a mix of 752s, 320s, 319s, and CR7s.

I'm pretty sure EWR won't be a CR7.......

All the best to UA, EWR and JAC here.

And I think that this is the airport that Harrison Ford flies his plane to/from when he's commuting between his home there and Los Angeles when he's working......

EWR-BZN is seasonal Saturday-only service on a 319. I saw it leaving BZN a few weeks ago. It started June 9 and ends September 1. It may or may not resume for the ski season -- I haven't heard any announcement on that yet.

The BZN service also resumes for ski season according to the airport website. www.bozemanairport.com

A good friend of mine has an uncle who lives next door to Harrison Ford in Jackson Hole. Apparently they are good friends but both are super, super reserved when they are out there -- so perhaps Harrison takes a private plane.

In all honesty it's a pretty random seasonal route from EWR. JAC makes way more sense but EWR-BZN may do well, IDK.

My guess is EWR-JAC will flux between a 320 and a 757.

What a surprise. I'm currently living in the area and think this service would do well. Jackson is extremely popular with East Coasters. There are a lot of Wall Street investors and NYers who have second (or perhaps third or fourth   ) homes in Jackson.

IAD service would have probably done well too, but most of those passengers arrive via DEN or ORD.

Its a cheaper alternative to JAC for those traveling to W. Wyoming/E. Idaho/S. Montana. The JAC-_____ -fares always seem to be through the roof. Bozeman isn't that close to Jackson, but its another alternative to SLC (4.5 hour drive) or IDA (Idaho Falls) (one hour drive with limited service).

BZN is actually quite a bit busier than JAC at least on an annual basis. According to the FAA, 2011 enplanements for BZN was 397,870 and for JAC it was 279,065 and BZN was up 9.15% compared to JAC being down 3.21%. Both airports have some of the best views of any airport in the U.S.

JAC traffic seems to be almost entirely leisure oriented, and probably gets more tourists than BZN, despite BZN having more traffic overall. BZN serves a much larger local population with a healthy business base, a university, and a fair bit of leisure traffic as well.

As for tourism, JAC serves 2 national parks, 3 ski resorts and extensive outdoor recreation opportunities. BZN serves 1 national park, 3 ski resorts (4 if you count the private Yellowstone Club), and extensive outdoor recreation opportunities. If you visit both places, you'll find that Jackson feels like a tourist town and Bozeman feels like a college town.

Similar to DL's Saturday-only ATL-BZN with a 738.

I remember DL used to do BIL-ATL with CR-9s for the sunbirds. The scuttlebutt I hear is that it was discontinued because G4 was admitted to the same wing of the airport.

I thought only UA used that 'diva' tactic.

Big Sky is one of the better resorts in the country. Not entirely random.

They need to open up JAC to United employees. They fly mainline aircraft into JAC almost all year long. All the ground equipment is owned my United. It would be a really nice station to work at.

I know tag ons tend to get roasted on this forum but if there was ever an opportunity to do one it would seem EWR-JAC-BZN would be it and cover both cities with one flight. Or even do a triangle flight....EWR-JAC-BZN-EWR.

I think that makes sense, too. The problem is that it kills the nonstop nature of the EWR service in one direction, so the itinerary couldn't be listed as nonstop, and you might lose customers who'd assume the stopover was a connection.

I think JAC would be better served as a nonstop from LGA as I have seen over the years the amount of passengers that continue to JAC after a LGA-DEN flight. However, I guess this is not possible due to that perimeter rule. Jackson is one of my favorite places and flights have been full this month.

Wow! Thanks for posting that. I didn't know that his plane was quite this big! I didn't really expect some rinky-dinker single prop, maybe more of a smaller double prop - but this is a cool jet......
