Beginning in September 15, 2016 twice-daily flights will begin traveling out of Denver to Dodge City and back.

The service will be provided by PenAir, one of Alaska’s largest regional airlines, reports the Dodge City Globe. Schedules and fares are now available at PenAir.com. or by calling PenAir’s Central Reservations at 800-448-4226.

Corey Keller, manager of the Dodge City airport, said the flights are important because “they’ll give the residents in this region access to a major airport hub.” He added: “Air service to Denver is very important in the continuing efforts to preserve and embrace the Essential Air Service program which provides rural America with access to the nation's air transportation network."

The current service, Great Lakes Airlines, continues through Sept. 14, 2016.
