Great Lakes Airlines flights & tickets

Great Lakes Airlines is a small, American airline company that operates domestic flights between 15 airports in the United States. Because of its small size and select service, it’s likely you’ve never heard of it before, but Great Lakes Airlines has a long history in the American flight industry that goes back to its beginnings in 1977 as a flight school, charter service and aircraft maintenance company.

Great Lakes Aviation’s route map has been subject to constant change in regards to the cities it flies into, but its main focus has always been to provide service to small-town communities located mostly in the Midwest region of the US. Its in-flight magazine, Peaks and Plains, provides passengers with a deeper glimpse of rural Americana, honoring the country’s long tradition of small town culture with features on the friendly towns the airline serves.

If you’re interested in flying Great Lakes, you will probably be either departing or arriving out of one of the airline’s four main hubs: Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Phoenix (PHX) or Denver (DEN). You may also fly on a Great Lakes airline plane, operated by one of the company’s codeshare agreement carriers, Elite Airways or Aerodynamics, Inc. Great Lakes Airlines is also a proud codeshare partner of airline giant United Airlines. United Airlines frequent flyers will be pleased to learn that flights operated by Great Lakes Airlines are eligible for frequent flyer miles earnings on United Airlines member loyalty programs.
