SkyWest served the Yellowstone Regional Airport for many years until 2022. SkyWest partners with major U.S. airlines United, Delta, American and Alaska.

SkyWest Airlines serves 237 cities in 42 states, Washington, D.C., Canada and Mexico and carried 38.6 million passengers in 2023. The airline features 485 aircraft in its fleet and recently announced the acquisition of up to 39 Embraer E175 aircraft, its most popular plane.
