Beginning October 12th, United Express jet service, operated by SkyWest Airlines, will take off at the Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport. The new flights will offer nonstop service to Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
“Our airport plays a large part in the region’s economy, especially our tourism industry. In a typical year, we have around 150,000 visitors coming to the Fort Leonard Wood Region for military graduations. Providing an option for convenient, safe, affordable flights into and out of the region is essential,” said St. Robert mayor George Lauritson.
Travelers will enjoy multiple daily flights between Fort Leonard Wood and Chicago onboard the 50-seat CRJ200. Flights will seamlessly connect as part of United’s global network. Passengers can book tickets today at: www.united.com.

Additionally, SkyWest fully participates in United Airlines’ discounted and flexible fares for federal government and military travelers.
