Tentative plans set for air service in west Kansas

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) Federal transportation authorities have tentatively selected air service providers for several western Kansas cities.

The Garden City Telegram reports that the U.S. Department of Transportation issued an order Monday selecting American Eagle Airlines to provide federally-subsidized air service between Garden City and Dallas.

The same order tentatively chooses Great Lakes Airlines to provide service between Denver and Dodge City, Great Bend, Hays and Liberal.

Garden City’s aviation director says “show of cause” orders like the one issued Monday are generally followed. However, the order requires a 10-day period for anyone to object it can become official. The final day for objections is Nov. 9.
