Starting December first, a trip to Hobbs will be as easy as getting on a plane.

New Mexico Airlines is branching into the Midland/Odessa area with two daily roundtrips.

There will be one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Also on the flight plan, an afternoon round trip flight between Hobbs, Midland-Odessa, and Ruidoso.

New Mexico Airlines officials say this new extension won't just connect Midland to New Mexico, it will connect New Mexico to West Texas.

"One of them said they like Midland, they come to Midland, fly out of Midland to go westbound or eastbound on the aircraft that we have here.  So they unanimously voted on coming to Midland.  It was neat to know that those people releate to Midland and Midland International Airport," Marv Esterly with New Mexico Airlines said.

They're already booking flights, just log onto for flight times.
