AviNation News: SeaPort investigates Boise-Idaho Falls service, Harrison passenger numbers improve & more

There is a lot going on for SeaPort Airlines this month!  Take a look:

1. SeaPort Airlines may begin serving Boise, Idaho Falls (East Oregonian)

Media in Boise and Idaho Falls are reporting SeaPort Airlines may begin flights between the two Idaho cities this summer.

And that could translate into air service between Pendleton and Boise.

KTVB, a Boise TV station, reported Tuesday that Portland-based SeaPort Airlines likely will begin flying from Boise in June. Company officials said they were exploring the possibility.

LocalNews8.com of Idaho Falls reported SeaPort officials as “very enthusiastic about the service.”

Like Pendleton, Idaho Falls once was served by Horizon Airlines.

Claire James, spokeswoman for SeaPort Airlines, confirmed Friday that officials of the commuter airline are investigating the possibility of serving the Idaho Falls-Boise market.

“If we move forward with operating flights in Idaho,” she said, “there is a very good chance that SeaPort will operate a number of flights between Pendleton and Boise as well.”

2. SeaPort improves from 41 – 953 passengers in year; Boone County Regional Airport – HarrisonDaily.com: News.

SeaPort officials recently shared with Arkansas’s congressional delegation the results of its first year of operation at four airports in Arkansas.

“Harrison is by far our greatest success story, due to the addition of Kansas City,” Daniel Helland, SeaPort’s director of strategy and systems, wrote. “As you know, it’s been so successful we’ve been able to add a daily unsubsidized leg.”
