Pierre Regional Airport easily passes 10,000 emplanements

PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – October enplanement numbers have been released for the Pierre Regional Airport. Airport liaison Commissioner Jamie Huizenga says Pierre Regional easily passed the 10,000 enplanement plateau.

Huizenga says a recent study by the State Department of Transportation shows just what kind of impact the Pierre Regional Airport has on central South Dakota.

Huizenga says the city is looking forward to how the numbers could lay out with a full, 12-month year of service with SkyWest Airlines in the Capital City.

Huizenga says there were some weather related delays in October impacting flights coming to Pierre because of snowy weather issues in Denver.
