CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Over the past few years, Cheyenne Regional Airport has undergone a phased rehabilitation of Runway 09-27.

Officials announced today that the next phase of runway rehabilitation will commence on April 5.

This year’s renovations will include the final phase of replacing approximately 3,600 feet of the runway’s pavement. This closure will require the airport to suspend airline service with SkyWest for approximately 160 days.

Projected schedules for the closure are subject to change depending on weather and other construction contingencies. Periodic project updates will be posted on the airport’s website and social media pages.

“We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we move into this next phase of the project. We look forward to completing the construction and welcoming back scheduled airline service on or about Sept. 10,” said Tim Bradshaw A.A.E., director of aviation for the Cheyenne Regional Airport.

Passengers who have already purchased tickets to travel during this time period are encouraged to reach out to United Airlines at 800-864-8331 to rebook their travel. 

The airport will remain open to general aviation and military operations that are able to use the secondary runway 13-31. 

The Cheyenne Regional Airport is the primary airport for southeast Wyoming and northern Colorado. CYS serves over 30,000 passengers per year via SkyWest Airlines and United Express with nonstop service to Denver.

CYS is also the base for the Wyoming Air National Guard, and the airport provides general aviation services through its fixed-base operator, Legend Aeroserve.
