Air service could be returning to Watertown and Pierre. Several airlines have put in propsals.
City officials want SkyWest Airlines, which will operate as United Express to provide service.
The airline said in their proposal, they will offer 12 round-trip flights a week between the two airports and Denver.
City officials believe this is the best option for residents because it connects to the United Airlines network providing more and cheaper options. The decision is up to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
