Southwest Airlines Rumors

As for Southwest Airlines, many folks in the Gallatin Valley have been waiting for the airline to begin serving Bozeman. With four new gates being planned, speculation that Southwest may soon be coming our way has definitely been heating up.

We asked Bozeman Airport Director Brian Sprenger about these rumors:

"We don't have any indication that Southwest is looking at Bozeman. We talk to the regularly but we still have some growing to do."

Sprenger went on to say, Southwest Airlines generally serves metropolitan areas and not micropolitan areas, such as Bozeman.

However, with the Gallatin Valley growing at such a rapid rate it could be a reality down the line.
