TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Officials are planning $32,000 in terminal improvements at the Topeka Regional Airport to prepare for new service to Chicago.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1aKwzFB ) the local airport authority on Tuesday approved purchases for upgrading restrooms and the terminal's public address system.

The authority announced last month United Airlines will offer two daily flights to Chicago starting Jan. 7. Each flight will hold 50 people, with fares expected to equal those from Kansas City International Airport.

The state and federal governments have promised $2 million in subsidies if the flights aren't profitable enough. Topeka's last commercial air service was flights to Las Vegas offered by Allegiant Air in 2007.
