Cedar City Regional Airport (IATA: CDC, ICAO: KCDC, FAA LID: CDC) is two miles northwest of Cedar City, in Iron County, Utah. It is owned by the Cedar City Corporation. Airline flights are subsidized by the Essential Air Service program.

Contents

Federal Aviation Administration records say the airport had 7,776 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008, 5,486 in 2009 and 5,997 in 2010. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a non-primary commercial service airport (between 2,500 and 10,000 enplanements per year).

History

SkyWest Airlines provided Essential Air Service (EAS) from 1972 until 2005 when Air Midwest, a subsidiary of Mesa Airlines was awarded the contract. Mayor Gerald Sherratt was quoted as saying “This is not good” when told the news about Mesa being awarded the contract. Citizens wrote to senator Orrin Hatch which prompted him in 2007 to write a letter to the United States Department of Transportation to urge them to select a new carrier to provide air service to Cedar City. Late in 2007, Mesa filed to discontinue service to Cedar City, and a new contract was awarded to SkyWest.

Western Airlines flew to Cedar City in the 1940s; Bonanza Air Lines DC-3s replaced them in 1957-58. Bonanza Fairchild F-27s flew Phoenix - Precott - Grand Canyon Airport - Page - Cedar City - Salt Lake City. Successor Air West/Hughes Airwest continued with F-27s, later flying between Cedar City and Las Vegas. Hughes Airwest dropped Cedar City in 1977.

SkyWest served Cedar City with 19-seat Fairchild Swearingen Metroliners, then 30-seat Embraer EMB-120 Brasilias. SkyWest now flies 50 seat Canadair regional jets as Delta Connection nonstop to Salt Lake City.
