TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka officials say United Airlines' plans to offer daily flights between Topeka Regional Airport and Chicago will boost the city's image and economy.
The Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority announced Monday that the two daily flights will begin Jan. 7. Each flight will hold 50 people and tickets are expected to cost the same as a ticket out of the Kansas City International Airport.
WIBW reports Topeka Mayor Larry Wolgast and Governor Sam Brownback both called the announcement big news for the city's economy.
Tickets are available to purchase immediately.
Johnson said United has said it might add more flights if the initial routes generate enough revenue.
