This fresh terminal is a completely new building a few hundred feet from the old onenow home to general aviationwhich makes for a faster taxi to the runway.
With only Delta and United flying in and out of the airport and usually only one arrival and departure for each, the airport acts as a vital air link to larger cities in the region. This wasn't our first time transiting through Yellowstone; we appreciate the ease of this little gem in the mountains.
Since our last visit, we have noticed more natural light (perfect for "big sky country"), more focus on modern design and local art and the addition of a restaurant. Keep an eye out for the log benches with cattle brands, historical photos, and the bear spray deposit box. Wait, what? Yes, since you cannot pass through security with liquid or aerosols, the bear repellent is off limits.
Yellowstone is far from your typical major port like JFK, O'Hare or Atlanta. It doesn't even have as many flights as most executive airports. Nonetheless, what it does have is a whole lot of charm and even more heart.
