CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A San Francisco-based airline's CEO says it plans to start flights between Clovis and Dallas-Fort Worth beginning in mid-July.
Boutique Air CEO Shawn Simpson says he expects his company will offer 18 round trips a week from Clovis, with more flights on weekdays than on weekends.
According to the Clovis News Journal, the U.S. Department of Transportation has established a July 22 deadline for the start of service. The agency will provide Boutique a nearly $3.9 million subsidy over two years.
Simpson said trips from the eastern New Mexico city to Albuquerque also could be scheduled after the Dallas-Fort Worth service is launched.
Clovis has been without air service since January.
