A day spent at Yampa Valley Regional Airport

From ticketing to TSA to maintenance, airport counts on its employees

Erik Plate hooks up an American Airlines 737 to auxiliary power Friday at Yampa Valley Regional Airport.


Assistant Airport Manager Dean Smith’s guidelines for traveling through Yampa Valley Regional Airport:

■ Parking is not allowed at the front entrance of the airport. The first hour is free in the long-term lot, and there’s a 30-minute lot near the front entrance.

■ Show up on time for the flight. During the winter, that’s 60 to 90 minutes before the flight is scheduled to leave, Smith said. During the summer, many airlines reduce staffing and will close check-in 30 minutes before departure, he said.
