Great Lakes Airlines to Start Nonstop Service from Salina to Denver

Salina, KS (May 13, 2016) -Great Lakes Airlines will start nonstop flights from the Salina Regional Airport to the Denver International Airport on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) announced the start of Denver flights this morning during a ribbon cutting opening of the newly remodeled passenger screening area at the Airport's M. J. Kennedy Air Terminal.

Senator Jerry Moran commented "Access to air service is critical to Central Kansas, and the updated terminal and Great Lakes' direct flights to Denver provide this region with safer, more efficient travel options. I appreciated the opportunity to work with the Salina Airport Authority to restore security screening to the airport. Commonsense tells me that without TSA presence, few people would utilize the new flight to Denver."

Great Lakes will offer Salina, Saline County and North Central Kansas travelers two daily, nonstop flights to Denver on 30 seat Embraer Brasilia regional aircraft. Great Lakes is a United Airlines code share partner which enables passengers to make connections to more than 180 nonstop destinations from Denver.

Great Lakes CEO, Doug Voss stated that "with the support of Senator Moran, Congressman Tim Heulskamp, the Salina Airport and TSA, Great Lakes is pleased to announce we have filed schedules and fares for the new Salina-Denver service starting June 15, 2016." Voss added, "we are excited to provide two well timed flights a day between Salina and Denver, which is the premier hub of the West".
