WATERTOWN, S.D.–Watertown Regional Airport saw more than 18,000 passenger boardings last year.

Airport Manager Todd Syhre says December numbers show Denver Air Connection carried 1,082 passengers out of Watertown. SkyWest, doing business as United Express, carried 940.

SkyWest scaled back service in December, and ended service to Watertown entirely this week.

For the year, Watertown’s total number of enplaned passengers was 18,284, which is the highest number ever.
