The Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport (WSRA) celebrated the new United Express jet service, provided by SkyWest Airlines this morning.

City of St. Robert Mayor Dr. George Lauritson, City of Waynesville Mayor Dr. Jerry Brown and the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber Executive Director Cecilia Murray spoke to the media to promote the new daily flights from the WSRA (TBN) to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) that began on Oct. 12.

Cecilia then boarded the flight on her way to NC.

United Express will provide two daily round trip flights between the WSRA and Chicago on their CRJ200 jet that seats 50 passengers.

Every passenger enjoys a window or aisle seat on this jet.

This service will connect WSRA passengers with 978 daily direct flights to almost 180 U.S. cities and 74 daily direct flights to 54 international destinations from ORD.

“This new service to Chicago provides a huge benefit to Fort Leonard Wood and the surrounding communities. Chicago is a major hub for air traffic and provides robust options for connections to destinations across the United States and around the world. This means that Fort Leonard Wood service members and military families will be able to travel more efficiently, reducing cost for the DOD and improving the quality of life for military members and families,” said Sustainable Ozarks Partnership executive director Dorsey Newcomb.

Passengers at the WSRA will still enjoy the same conveniences the airport has always offered, including free parking and free wi-fi while waiting to board the plane.

Those traveling from the WSRA can find complete instructions on preparing for their upcoming flight, including installation access procedures, on the airport’s website:
