As Prescott’s Mayor and City Council voted to continue the essential air service (EAS) for another two years, Great Lakes Aviation (www.GreatLakesAv.com) has stepped up by upgrading its 9 seat aircraft with both 19 and 30 seat capacity planes, starting December 17th.
Great Lakes Aviation now considers Prescott a “focus city”. This means they will base both aircraft and a mechanic in Prescott, AZ. Moreover, Great Lakes Aviation will increase daily flights to Los Angeles from two to four flights per day, and add flights to Denver with two flights per week, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Larger Aircraft With Bathrooms and In-Flight Service
For some of the Los Angeles (LAX) and Denver (DEN) flights, the 30 seat Embraer Turbo Prop Brasilia will be utilized. The Brasilia will have both in flight air service (flight attendant) and a bathroom - a welcome upgrade for customers that have flown on the current Beechcraft turbo prop which does not have a bathroom or in-flight service.
Low, Introductory Rates
Additionally, Great Lakes Aviation is offering introductory fares to both LAX and DEN. To Los Angeles, with 7 day advance notice, fares start at only $97 and to Denver only $130 one way.
