The federal government has approved a recommendation for a new airline carrier at the Prescott Municipal Airport.
The Prescott City Council and an airport advisory committee had recommended a commercial air-carrier proposal from Skywest Airlines, operating as United Express.
The city announced this week that the U.S. Department of Transportation approved it. The length of the contract is two years.
The airline's 50-seat jets will make daily round-trip flights between Prescott and Denver. It will fly to and from Los Angeles every day except Saturday.
The service starts in late August.
The new carrier replaces Great Lakes Airlines, which suspended its service in Prescott in March.
