A day spent at Yampa Valley Regional Airport
From ticketing to TSA to maintenance, airport counts on its employees
March 28, 2010
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.
