Great Lakes Airline
Great Lakes Aviation, Ltd. airline service returned to Salina, Kan. beginning March 30, 2008, with two new daily flights to Denver in addition to two flights to Kansas City.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded the 2008-2010 Salina and Manhattan Essential Air Service contract to Great Lakes after vacating the contract previously held by Air Midwest.
Salina leaders have been working with Great Lakes for more than a year to develop airline route alternatives in order to grow airline service options for the community. New scheduled service to Denver gives area travelers access to a number of additional destinations served by the Denver hub.
SLN has already seen an increase in passengers flying out of Salina to Kansas City and Denver. It has been nice to see a lobby full of people throughout the day. It make economical sense to fly from Salina with free parking and less miles in the car.
