GREAT BEND, Kansas (AP) – Air service has returned to Great Bend Municipal Airport, with daily flights to Wichita and Kansas City.

SeaPort Airlines began flying out of the city Monday. It will offer two round trips each weekday to Wichita and one to Kansas City. A reduced scheduled will be offered on weekends.

SeaPort was awarded a two-year Essential Air Service contract. The Portland, Oregon-based company replaces Great Lakes Aviation, which offered service from Great Bend to Denver, with a stop in Hays.

The Seaport flights will use nine-passenger Cessna Caravans.

The Wichita flights will have an average price of $41.30. The Kansas City flight, which stops in Salina, will have an average price of $62. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
