Sheridan County Commissioners, along with Airport Manager John Stopka, met with officials from Great Lakes Airlines Thursday to discuss ways to improve the service in Sheridan.
Great Lakes CEO Chuck Howell explains that a significant change May 1st will help with dependability and reliability.
Commissioner Steve Maier says that they will remain optimistic as far as the additional planes improving local service.
Beginning May 1st, Great Lakes will have an additional four planes that will be on hand to provide flights out of Sheridan. It should be noted that there will not be additional flights added, just several more planes that can be utilized locally.
Howell stated that very soon Great Lakes will not offer air service from Sheridan to Billings.
Howell said that it will be around mid-June when the air service from Sheridan to Billings will no longer exist.
