Flights to Wichita At A Standstill

KSCB News - October 23, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – Garden City officials say discussion

about possible flights between Wichita and cities in the Garden

City area are at a standstill.

Rachelle Powell, director of aviation at Garden City Regional

Airport, says there’s still interest in the flights, but funding

sources aren’t currently available.

Powell met with city officials earlier this month to discuss a

feasibility study on the flights. The study found that it would be

cheaper to drive than to fly from places like Garden City, Liberal

and Dodge City to the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.

However, Powell says there is still support for the flights

because they would save time for travelers.

Currently, no air service connects Wichita to the rest of the

state.
