Skywest To Serve Rhinelander For Delta.

Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:17 pm

I did not see this anywhere on the forum, and the news is already a few weeks old, so I figured I should get it on here. Anyhow, it appears that Frontier finally can pull out of Rhinelander. Skywest has signed a two-year contract to serve the airport, and will operate two CRJ flights to Minneapolis under the Delta Connection Brand. No start date has been announced.

Hi some of the RHI aspects were part discussion thread started on Sept 13:

Delta (Skywest) Back At IMT IronMtn MI Under EAS

with one of the IMT flights to MSP operating via RHI.

I just want SkyWest (Delta) get the CMX EAS contract again from SkyWest (United) when it comes up for bid again in a year. ORD sucks for connections off of a CRJ.

That's certainly possible for the next round; however, it's also very possible that SkyWest would want at least one airport in the area to have UA service to provide an option for area travelers since it's pretty DL(pm-NW)-centric.
