CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Citing low passenger numbers, Great Lakes Airlines is ending its federally-subsidized flights between Clovis and Denver International Airport.
Officials with the Wyoming-based airline say there are less than four passengers per trip on the two daily flights that stop in Santa Fe.
Great Lakes began working with Clovis’ municipal airport in April 2005 with flights to and from Albuquerque Sunport. It operated under that agreement until moving operations to Denver last year.
The Clovis News Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1eaqjNN) that Great Lakes is required to provide service to Clovis until a new carrier is in place.
The New Mexico Department of Transportation plans to put Clovis passenger service out to bid next week. The termination will be discussed in a Civil Aviation Board meeting Tuesday night at the Clovis airport.
