WATERTOWN, S.D.–The U.S. Department of Transportation has chosen a new commercial airline to serve Watertown, but it’s clear that city officials are not excited about their decision.

On Tuesday, the U.S. DOT chose Denver Air Connection to replace SkyWest Airlines in Watertown–effective June 1st.

Watertown city officials have been very happy with SkyWest, and the reliable service they’ve provided to Chicago and Denver.

Mayor Sarah Caron went so far as to say they’ll ask the U.S. DOT to reconsider….

Denver Air Connection would provide six weekly flights to both Denver and Chicago.

Denver flights would include a stop in Pierre.
