MONTEREY, CALIF. (KION-TV)- Monterey Regional Airport has announced they've added new services for three destinations.

According to officials, the airport will have second nonstop flights for Dallas Fort Worth, Denver and San Diego. The additional nonstop flights are an increase in daily frequency to the three markets. Executive Director Michael La Pier says these new services will be helpful during a busy time.

“This increase in service is just in time for summer travel," La Pier said. "Passenger traffic at Monterey has been doing extremely well and is now rivaling our historic levels. In fact, the Denver, Dallas and San Diego flights have performed so well that passenger loads on our current flights are at or near capacity. Adding a second daily round trip to these three destinations means more connection opportunities throughout the growing MRY route system. It also means an increase in the number of visitors flying to the Monterey region for leisure, business and conventions,”

The service to Denver will be provided by United Airlines and start on April 10th. The service to San Diego will be provided by Alaska Airlines and start on April 17th. Both routes will fly an Embraer 175 aircraft that features 76 seats in a two-class configuration, including first class cabin service. Every seat on the Embraer 175 will either be a window or an aisle seat since there's no middle seats.

The added service to Dallas Fort Worth will be provided by American Airlines and start May 6th. This route will be using an Airbus 319 aircraft that features 128 total seats and will be offering three classes, with 8 First Class seats, 24 Main Cabin Extra seats, and 96 seats in the Main Cabin.

Tickets for these added route services are on sale now.
