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.

About 500 Great Lakes Airlines passengers boarded flights at the Farmington airport between January and August this year, with the number peaking in January with 144 passengers. Only 12 people boarded Great Lakes planes in Farmington in August.
