    Recent growth at BZN

    To preface the interview we did with Mr. Sprenger, it is important to recognize the sheer growth at Bozeman. For summer 2021, BZN is anticipating seeing service from nine airlines with nonstop service to 24 markets. This will be the most ever that Bozeman has seen.

    In addition, the airport expects its available seats for May through October 2021 to increase a whopping 45% over the previous record set in 2019.

    Expanded service since the start of the crisis has come from many different airlines. In early February, Allegiant announced it would be adding twice-weekly nonstop service during the summer season from Bozeman to three cities.

    Alaska Airlines then upgauged flights between Bozeman and Seattle to mainline Airbus service after adding a new service to Los Angeles using an Embraer E175 at the end of 2020. A few days after Alaska’s maiden mainline flight to Bozeman, American Airlines announced daily nonstop summer service between Bozeman and Phoenix.

    Then, the big icing on the cake for summer 2021 came at the end of February, when Southwest Airlines announced new daily services from May 27th to Denver and Las Vegas, with up to six daily flights this summer out of Bozeman.
