FLY SUN VALLEY ALLIANCE: AIR SERVICE REDUCTIONS FOR REMAINDER OF MARCH PLANNED AT SUN

March 20, 2020

NEWS – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago flights canceled

A significant reduction in flights to/from Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) in Sun Valley, including cancellations of nonstop flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, is planned for the remainder of March announced Fly Sun Valley Alliance and airport officials. The decision was made in conjunction with airlines and community air partners due to Coronavirus COVID-19 concerns which prompted a deep drop in travel demand and early closure of the Sun Valley ski resort. Most seasonal nonstop flights at SUN were originally scheduled to operate through March 29.

The daily United Airlines flights to San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), and Saturday Chicago (ORD) flight will be canceled for the period of March 21-29. Denver (DEN) flights will continue to operate through March 29 as originally scheduled in order to help accommodate passengers displaced from the canceled flights. United will notify passengers booked on the canceled flights and assist in re-accommodating them.

Delta Air Lines will operate three daily flights to Salt Lake City (SLC) through March 29 and will maintain the planned two daily flight schedule for the spring season, March 30 – June 7, 2020. Alaska Airlines daily service to Seattle (SEA) is currently scheduled to end March 29 and restart on May 21.

The situation remains fluid and airlines may make additional changes as warranted, officials noted.
