Jackson Hole Airport Business Takes Off

Sunday marks the beginning of the busy winter airline schedule at Jackson Hole Airport, with 11 non-stop flights to and from Jackson Hole over the next few months.  Airport manager Ray Bishop says due to the popularity of the Jackson Hole area, the airport is expected to be extremely busy and the lobby to fill up fast.  Since most of the flights will be arriving mid-day, Bishop says it is to your advantage to check in online, pay for any bag fees on line and have all of the receipts in hand when you arrive.  Says Bishop:  “Expect large crowds – there’s going to be over a thousand people in the noon-time rush hour trying to all get through security and ticketing at the same time, so come at least two hours early. Bishop says most airlines have done away with those flights requiring the planes to remain overnight in Jackson Hole and instead, all nine spaces on the tarmac will be occupied by jetliners arriving in about a 1½ hour window around the noon-hour.  Bishop adds that arriving at the Jackson Hole Airport at Christmas time is a little unusual for air travelers. The “Howdy Partners” will be handing out mimosas to travelers arriving on the weekends, there will be classical guitar musicians playing holiday music, and this year, Bishop says the airport will also have a classical pianist performing in the terminal.  Bishop explains, “We’re hoping for a wonderful experience and welcome to Jackson Hole – this is a special place and we want people to feel welcome when they step off the airplane.” This year’s winter flights will provide non-stop service to Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, New York/JFK, Newark, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
