GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Garden City officials say early response to a new air service makes them hopeful the service will prosper.

The aviation director at the Garden City Regional Airport says American Eagle flights from Garden City to Dallas were at maximum capacity last weekend.

The American Eagle regional jet service to and from Dallas began on April 3. It replaced daily flights to and from Denver, which were operated by Great Lakes Aviation.

The Garden City Telegram (http://bit.ly/JlGK8v) reports monthly passenger counts in April won't be available until mid-May.

Brett Hooyerink, a senior manager with American Airlines, says the airline is elated with the early full planes. But he says advance bookings have gotten off to a slow start, so the airline feels it has more work to do to attract passengers.
