Where We've Been
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!
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.
The paved runways allow passenger service to take place for the first time, provided by Summit Airlines.
Original terminal is built.
A name change results in Brees Field becoming Laramie Regional Airport.
The original terminal is remodeled.
A heated community hangar is completed, runways are extended to accommodate larger aircraft, and the City of Laramie water project is completed.
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.
Opened a new 14,000 square foot terminal.
