GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Boarding numbers at Garden City Regional Airport continue to fly high, about 1 1/2 years after the airport began offering flights to Dallas/Fort Worth.

Airport boardings began to improve soon after American Eagle began offering two daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth in April 2012. In the first year, the airport recorded 18,000 boardings, compared with 11,690 in all of 2011.

The Garden City Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/18o3Sgy ) that in the first seven months of 2013, the airport has recorded 13,726 passengers. Aviation director Rachelle Powell is estimating the airport will have about 23,000 boardings this year.

Before the change to American Eagle, Great Lakes Aviation offered flights to Denver out of Garden City.
