Great Lakes Airlines will be resuming flights to Denver after a nearly five-year hiatus. They will offer Clovis-Santa Fe-Denver flights that will begin on December 1 and Santa Fe Municipal Airport Director Jim Montman said that this is fantastic news and that Denver is their most highly requested new destination. Great Lakes Airlines pulled out of Denver in 2008, leaving the city without service for over a year, until American Eagle Airlines launched flights to Los Angeles and Dallas.
An official with Great Lakes Airlines said that although they did not have trouble finding passengers when they offered service before, it was hard for them to make money with only 19-seat planes. Now the airline will be offering flights from Clovis to Denver, via Santa Fe. These flights are made possible by an essential air agreement that is subsidized by the federal government. The cost of a one-way ticket between Santa Fe and Denver is about $100.
