SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Municipal Airport officials say United Airlines will begin offering flights from Santa Fe to Denver on May 1.

Wednesday's announcement comes weeks after the airport teamed up with Great Lakes Airlines to offer four daily flights to Denver and Clovis, N.M.

United's companion airline United Express will offer flights twice daily out of Santa Fe.

There also will be two daily flights from Denver to Santa Fe.

Airport officials say ExpressJet will operate the flights using 50-seat Embraer regional jet aircraft.

They say the one way ticket price is $126 and round trip is $256.
