FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – Great Lakes Airlines will increase the number of flights into and out of the Four Corners Regional Airport starting next month.
The Daily Times reports that starting Oct. 1 the airline will offer 15 flights a week out of Farmington. Currently the airline offers direct flights from Farmington to Denver and Page, Ariz. From Page there is a flight to Phoenix.
Great Lakes Airlines has served as the airport’s sole provider of commercial flights since 2008 when Mesa Airlines and U.S. Airways stopped service to Farmington.
