Schedule Change to Greatly Improve Connecting Options for Elko Travelers

Flight times optimized for connections through Delta’s Salt Lake City hub beginning August 1

The City of Elko and the Elko Regional Airport (EKO) are excited to announce a significant change to the daily flight schedules operated by SkyWest Airlines. Since February, Elko’s one daily flight from SLC has arrived at approximately 2:00pm followed by a return departure to SLC roughly forty minutes later. Effective August 1, new schedules have been introduced that will arrive into EKO at 5:27pm with the return flights to SLC departing at 6:10pm*. The new timing of these daily flights will allow for ideal connections to and from two of Delta’s strongest banks of connecting flights, nearly doubling the number of connections available to Elko travelers.

The City of Elko and SkyWest Airlines recently agreed to a Transportation Services Agreement to secure one daily flight between EKO and SLC through December 31, 2022. Advantages of flying out of Elko Regional Airport include:  Local convenience, inexpensive parking, less drive time, no overnight stays in Salt Lake City, and less hassle! Before driving to Salt Lake City, please check www.Delta.com or www.Flyelkonevada.com to book a convenient, comfortable and now well-timed flights from your hometown airport!

 * New planned schedules are effective August 1 – September 11; all future schedules are subject to change.
