Boutique Air's website advertises the Show Low flight.

A small San Francisco-based airline will start offering round-trip service between Sky Harbor and Show Low next month.

Boutique Air was awarded the Essential Air Service contract for the route — that’s a federal program that helps ensure air service to smaller communities.

This is among a few such routes Boutique Air has. Shawn Simpson, the carrier’s CEO, talks about who he expects to see on the flights.

Serving smaller communities with flights is a national requirement, but according to aviation expert Robert Mittelstaedt, the costs in Arizona can really stand out.
