Beginning July 15, Branson Airport will begin offering daily flights for the first time since 2014.

The flights to Denver and Houston will come aboard Elite Airways. As of now, the flight schedule is set through early December.

In a news release Wednesday, executive director Jeff Bourk said the city has needed national access like this.

“This new Elite Airways’ service will deliver over 100 connections to major cities all over the country with multiple flight options, making it easier than ever for visitors to get to our exciting destination.”

Branson Airport hasn’t had daily service to a single destination since Frontier and Southwest Airlines exited the market two years ago.

One-way flights from Branson to Denver start at $150, while travel to Houston retails for $95 one-way. The airport also will offer seasonal service to New Orleans and Austin on Branson AirExpress from May 27 to August 14.
