SkyWest Airlines to discontinue service to Denver from Rochester International Airport

Rochester, MN (September 23rd, 2021) – SkyWest Airlines, operating on behalf of United Airlines, will discontinue service between Denver International Airport (DEN) and Rochester International Airport (RST) effective October 31, 2021.

“This is very difficult news for our community,” said John Reed, executive director. “We share in the disappointment at the loss of this route. The ongoing effects of the pandemic continue to impact the air travel industry and airlines are making decisions to terminate flights in communities across the country.”

With the discontinuation of United’s Chicago service in September and Denver service on October 31st, United Airlines will no longer serve the Rochester market. Passengers with United Airlines reservations to/from RST October 31st, 2021 and beyond should rebook at united.com or by calling United Airlines reservations at 800.UNITED.1 (800.846.8331).

Flights from RST to Chicago O’Hare are available on American Airlines. Delta Air Lines operates flights to Minneapolis-St. Paul and Atlanta (resumes November 7th) from RST. Sun Country Airlines will begin nonstop flights to Phoenix, AZ and Fort Myers, FL in February 2022.
