Airline to fly between Santa Fe, Phoenix

Updated:

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Great Lakes Aviation says it plans to begin offering flights between Santa Fe and Phoenix starting in May.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the airline already flies from Santa Fe to Denver and Clovis. However, the flights to southeastern New Mexico will end with the addition of the Phoenix connection.

The airline's announcement comes as the Santa Fe Municipal Airport waits to find out whether its control tower might lose its federal employees due to automatic budget cuts. Airport director Jim Montman says that decision won't be made until March 22.

Montman says he's excited about Great Lakes' new service and hopes it will attract additional flights.

Advertised online fares for the Great Lakes flights between Santa Fe and Phoenix start at $89 for a nonrefundable one-way ticket on a twin-engine turboprop airplane.
