New Air Service Announced for Albuquerque and Grant County


Boutique Air Providing Daily, Roundtrip Flights in the New Year

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.- December 24, 2014- Boutique Air, an FAA certified air carrier providing both air charter and scheduled services, today announces they will be initiating service between Grant County Airport (SVC) and Albuquerque (ABQ) beginning January 5th, 2015, with tickets bookable now. The flight time is just under one hour and the current schedule will allow for passengers to spend a full day in both the Silver City and Albuquerque / Santa Fe areas.

In prior years, Grant County had service to Phoenix, but traveling to Albuquerque and Santa Fe remained challenging. Receiving strong support from the Grant County leadership and broader community, Boutique Air was awarded the DOT Essential Air Service contract in early December.

“We are excited to connect Grant county residents with Albuquerque,” says, Shawn Simpson, founder and CEO of Boutique Air. “Many in the community expressed support for intra-state air service and we are pleased to be meeting the demand.”
