Where We've Been

1934

Laramie Regional Airport is established as "Brees Field," named after General Herbert Jay Brees of the U.S. Army. Fun fact: The original hangar of Laramie Regional Airport still stands today!

1944

The runways at Brees Field are paved in order to allow hundreds of B-24 bombers to land in Laramie. These bombers deliver crews to the University of Wyoming recreation camp in the Snowy Range for rest and recuperation.

1945

The paved runways allow passenger service to take place for the first time, provided by Summit Airlines.

1959

Original terminal is built.

1992

A name change results in Brees Field becoming Laramie Regional Airport.

1994

The original terminal is remodeled.

1997

A heated community hangar is completed, runways are extended to accommodate larger aircraft, and the City of Laramie water project is completed.

2015

Completed an upgrade from its previous 1940s era 1,500-sq-ft structure to a newly built 4,000-sq-ft terminal this month. The $2.3 million project, which took 18 months, included ramp drainage and lighting, along with new fencing and gates around the Avfuel-branded FBO, a new parking lot where the former terminal building once stood, and landscaping. The new building provides a passenger lounge/lobby, pilot lounge with full crew kitchen, a 15-seat A/V-equipped conference room, and a pair of snooze rooms.

2021

Opened a new 14,000 square foot terminal.

Where We are Today

Currently, Laramie Regional Airport serves an average of 40 based aircraft, including private and corporate planes. Additionally, LAR houses the University of Wyoming's Department of Atmospheric Research aircraft, which is used to conduct groundbreaking research.

As a Part 139 Air Carrier Certified airport, with non-precision instrument approaches and trained aviation and rescue fire-fighting personnel, Laramie Regional Airport also plays an important role in fire-fighting efforts. LAR also provides airport weather conditions via ASOS 135.475.

Laramie Regional Airport is operated and financed by the City of Laramie and Albany County and governed by a Board of Directors, appointed by a joint committee of the city and county.

Where We're Going

At Laramie Regional Airport, we take pride in serving the community of Laramie with quality air transportation, and we hope to continue to take convenience to new altitudes for our travelers for years to come.
