Fly Cheyenne on Tuesday announced that the air cargo company Alpine Air Express is partnering with Cheyenne Regional Airport.

According to its website, Alpine Air Express was incorporated in Utah in 1975 and was a passenger airline until 1999, when it discontinued passenger service.

The website also says the air cargo carrier "currently has multiple contracts with the United States Postal Service and with United Parcel Service. The Company’s routes include service throughout the western United States. The Company transports mail packages and other time-sensitive cargo as one of the largest regional air-cargo providers in the U.S." 

The company is headquartered in Provo, Utah. The Fly Cheyenne news release quotes Alpine vice-president of maintenance Kerry Cuthbert as saying:

The Cheyenne facility is our new regional heavy aircraft maintenance and paint facility for Alpine’s western regional operation. This facility will perform repairs on Alpine Air’s cargo fleet of Beechcraft 1900C/D, and B99 aircraft. With this expansion, Alpine Air will have aviation and support employment opportunities in Cheyenne, as well as other locations in Alpine's operating regions.”

Cheyenne Regional Airport Director of Aviation Tim Bradshaw is quoted in the release as saying: “Alpine Air is well-known throughout the air cargo industry for its on-time (99+%) performance serving United Parcel Service (UPS), United States Postal Service (USPS) and Amazon. The company serves over 45 markets in the Mountain West region and was recently recognized by the FAA for their efforts in converting Beechcraft 1900D aircraft into cargo planes. We are pleased that Alpine Air has chosen Cheyenne for its new base of operations,” Bradshaw concluded.
