ABOUT THE AIRPORT

We at Western Nebraska Regional airport are proud to be known as the “Scottsbluff Airport.” We strive to provide the highest standards of customer service, convenience, and cleanliness in all of our facilities. Our mission is to serve Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming with the safest possible air service and to help spur economic growth in our business community for our neighbors.

OUR HISTORY

The first landing strips in Scottsbluff are believed to exist since approx. 1928 in a private pasture. Inland Airlines provided air service through Scottsbluff from Cheyenne, WY, to Rapid City, SD, Spearfish, SD, and Pierre, SD, with a Boeing 247 beginning August 1940.

On September 1942, an announcement was made that Scottsbluff was selected as one of seven satellite air bases that would be located in Nebraska. Twenty-eight farms were purchased for the new airfield’s construction. Construction began at the new base in September 1942. A temporary railroad spur was occupied as early as October 1942. Initially, Scottsbluff Army Airfield was a satellite to the Casper Wyoming airbase. The first troops arrived December 1942.
