POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Pocatello’s commercial air service is getting an upgrade.

SkyWest Airlines, a regional carrier on contract with Delta Airlines, will begin using 50-seat jets next year in place of 30-seat turboprops on its Pocatello to Salt Lake City service.

The airline provides the only commercial service at Pocatello’s airport. It operates twice daily on weekdays and once a day on weekends.

Pocatello Regional Airport manager David Allen tells the Idaho State Journal (https://bit.ly/1zPzwSr ) that the Canadair CRJ-200 jets are quieter and more comfortable. They’ll replace Embraer EMB-120 turboprops.

Allen says the Pocatello airport has seen 8 percent annual growth since September 2012, higher than the national average.
