GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) -- Great Bend will be without air service at the end of March, after Great Lakes Airlines notified the city this week that it plans to end service a month early.

Airport Manager Martin Miller announced the news Thursday. The Cheyenne, Wyo.-based airline had been scheduled to end its service at the end of April. Great Lakes will continue its flights from Hays to Denver.

The Great Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Px9DFX ) the city is anticipating that SeaPort Airlines of Portland, Ore., will receive a contract to serve Great Bend under the federal Essential Air Service program, though that choice is not yet official.

SeaPort is expected to provide twice-daily service to Wichita and once-daily service to Kansas City through Salina. The service might not be available by the first of May.
