CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Great Lakes Airlines has announced that it will end service out of Clovis
    
Clovis News Journal reports  that the airline filed a termination notice this week to end its federally-subsidized flights between Clovis and Denver International Airport, with a stop at Santa Fe.
    
Under terms of Essential Air Service, Great Lakes is required to provide service to Clovis until a new carrier is in place.

Airport Director Gene Bieker says the Department of Transportation plans to put Clovis passenger service out to bid next week.
    
The Cheyenne, Wyo.-based airline first worked with Clovis in April 2005 with flights to and from Albuquerque Sunport, and operated under that agreement until it decided to move operations to Denver last year.
