PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - The Pueblo City Council is hoping to increase the number of passengers at Pueblo Memorial Airport so it can get a federal subsidy.

Officials are hoping United Express service beginning in April will increase airport traffic. Airport officials are worried because Great Lakes Airlines is ending its Pueblo operations in the near future.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain (https://tinyurl.com/n7s9jj3 ), the airport needs 10,000 passengers a year to qualify for a $1 million a year subsidy from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The airport has not qualified for the funds since 2011.
