The Hobbs News-Sun reports the airline and Lea County officials say the flights from Hobbs will start Oct. 27. The announcement comes as  county officials seek to double the passenger holding area at Lea County Regional Airport.

Hobbs Mayor Sam Cobb says the new direct flights show confidence in the robust and growing economy of the Permian Basin.

United's nonstop flights to Denver International Airport into the Permian Basin will be operated as United Express service six days per week.

United is also scheduled to continue to operate two daily nonstop flights from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport. There will be one flight that operates to and from Houston on Saturdays.
