PHOENIX — Regional airline Advanced Air added a route to metro Phoenix Monday, with travel to and from a northwestern city in New Mexico.

The nonstop flight between Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Gallup will take off once a day, after flight services stopped in Gallup more than 12 years ago, officials announced.

Tickets can be purchased online, with some deals as low as $91 each way.

The flight will reduce a 4.5-hour long drive from Phoenix to Gallup to a scheduled flight time of just over an hour.

“I spent a lot of time in New Mexico, and actually got to spend a lot of time in Gallup, New Mexico, and I know how key that city is to the northwestern part of New Mexico and to the Navajo Nation,” U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego said at the ribbon cutting event held Monday.

“The airlinks that we have in this country are extremely important. It really does connect different parts of our country. It connects part of our country that doesn’t get the same attention.”

Gallego added that the avenue will likely be used by many veterans living near the area as the community has generations of military history.

Other leaders at the ribbon cutting event were Phoenix City Councilwoman Debra Stark, Gallup Mayor Louis Bonaguidi and Advanced Air Founder and President Levi Stockton.

Since the start of the pandemic, air service at Sky Harbor has steadily increased while it has also outperformed peer airports, with 53 new routes and leading the nation in passenger recovery, Stark said.
