HOBBS - Frequent flyers out of Hobbs can expect more options in the near future.

Continental Airlines is going to start offering jet services between the Lea County International Airport and their hub in Houston. Starting in March, the airline will offer four Express Jet flights a day to Houston.

Each plane will be able to seat 50 people. The Lea County Economic Development Corporation says they expect the new flights will mean more business opportunities for all county citizens.
