Great Lakes Airlines, formerly Great Lakes Aviation, is an American airline based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA. It is a regional airline operating domestic scheduled and charter services. Its main base is Cheyenne Regional Airport, with a hub at Denver International Airport, and aircraft bases at Kansas City International Airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.cite news | title= Directory: World Airlines | work= Flight International | pages= 87-88 | date= 2007-04-03] Great Lakes has focus cities in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


The airline was established by Doug Voss and Ivan Simpson and started operations on April 5, 1977. It began scheduled services on October 12, 1981, with flights between Spencer, Iowa, and Des Moines, Iowa. In February 1988, Great Lakes acquired Alliance Airlines, adding six cities around Lake Michigan to the route network. In the following years it continued to expand and in February 1992 signed a codesharing agreement with United Airlines. On January 19, 1994, the airline went public trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange. In October 1995, Great Lakes began operating under the Midway Connection banner at Raleigh/Durham through a marketing agreement with Midway Airlines, but this ceased in 1997. Its status with United Express was downgraded to a codeshare agreement in 2001 and on May 1, 2001, it became an independent carrier. Great Lakes has code sharing agreements with United Airlines and Frontier Airlines. The state of Wyoming heavily subsidizes Great Lakes, because it is the only airline serving six of the ten commercial airports in Wyoming. Great Lakes Airlines has recently been given DOT approval to take over EAS service to Billings, Montana from seven other Montana cities formerly served by Big Sky Airlines.
