WATERTOWN, S.D.–February is typically one of the slower months for air travel out of Watertown Regional Airport (ATY), and that was the case again last month, although the numbers do show improvement over February of last year.

Airport Manager Rob Cyrus says there were 881 passengers who flew out of Watertown on Denver Air Connection last month, compared to 778 in February 2023.

Those enplanements last month included 517 passengers flying to Denver, and 364 to Chicago.

For the first two months of the year, 1,837 passengers have flown out of Watertown. That’s 322 more than the same two month period last year.
