GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - Air travel between Gillette and Salt Lake City is about to get a bit faster.

Delta air carrier Sky West plans to begin offering jet service between the two cities starting Feb. 1. The jet flights will shave about 20 minutes off the current propeller-plane flights.

The Gillette News-Record reports (https://bit.ly/1zjlz0m ) Sky West agreed to bring jet service to Gillette when Campbell County approved a $3.5 million air service subsidy for the carrier in September.

Sky West says the 50-passenger jet planes not only are faster but bigger than the 30-passenger planes flying the route right now.
