ROCK SPRINGS — United Airlines has cancelled flights out of the Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport tonight and tomorrow morning due to ongoing industry-wide crew shortages, said Airport Director Devon Brubaker.

According to a social media post from the airport, tonight’s arrival from Denver and Monday morning’s departure to Denver are cancelled because of the shortage.

“We know that there are many frustrated passengers impacted by the recent cancellations caused by airline staffing issues across the country. We are just as frustrated. Making things worse is the lengthy hold times to speak with a reservations agent,” another social media post states.

“Unfortunately, every airline is short-staffed in every department. The combination of an already reduced staff coupled with the emergence of the Omicron variant are having adverse impacts across the industry, impacting every airline and airport,” the post continued.
