Garden City chooses airline service to Dallas

June 9, 2011


— Garden City officials have voted to change the city's airline service, which would mean offering daily flights to Dallas rather than Denver.

The commission's decision on Tuesday to accept an Essential Air Service bid from American Eagle must be approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Garden City Telegram reports that American Eagle, the main regional carrier for American Airlines, was one four companies to bid for federally-subsidized service from the Garden City Regional Airport.

American Eagle would offer twice daily round-trip flights from Garden City to Dallas on a 44-seater aircraft. The airline would be given a 120-day trial and will not be required to sign a two-year contract.

The current carrier, Great Lakes Airlines, provides daily flights to and from Denver.
