It will soon be even easier to fly to Riverton. SkyWest Airlines (a regional partner for United Airlines) is adding extra daily flights on Thursdays and Saturdays from Denver to the Central Wyoming Regional Airport (CWRA). For the past year, there has only been one daily round-trip flight from the airport. Industry issues caused by the pandemic and an increasing pilot shortage have affected regional airports around the country. Adding a flight back into Riverton shows the strength of the market and growth in the Fremont County area.
Located in Riverton, the airport provides great access to central Wyoming. Instead of making the six hour drive from Denver, you can land right in the middle of the state and begin enjoying yourself immediately. And, there is a lot to do.
