Representatives of United Airlines told officers of Jackson Hole Air that they were very pleased with the success they saw this past winter in Jackson Hole, and are willing to explore expanding the service to other markets that would make sense to continuing that success. Mark Barron, who serves as the vice chairman of Jackson Hole Air says he and Executive Director Carrie Cooper visited with the airline about some specific markets that might be attractive. Among those, he says are Washington-Dulles and Houston which he says they have asked the airline to consider for the next winter season. He points out that Houston provides an important hub for travel from Latin American countries into America. Likewise, Barron says Washington-Dulles is an excellent hub to and from Europe. This past winter, Barron says the various airlines provided non-stop service to nine major markets out of Jackson with United making a majority of those connections. He says it is amazing that a community with a population of about 21-thousand provides jet service to Atlanta, Newark, Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Denver , and Salt Lake. Plus, Barron says there is a flight from LaGuardia that stops in Denver before continuing on to Jackson. Barron says representatives of Jackson Hole Air will be visiting with representatives of the three other major airlines providing seasonal service to Jackson Hole in the near future.
