SeaPort Value Accounts & Turtles Visit JFK

Fellow SeaPorters…have you heard about the SeaPort Airlines Value Accounts?  Value Accounts are a wonderful way for entire businesses, families, or individuals to save a few bucks on their frequent travel (specifically 5-15% on tickets, not to mention the other perks…).


If you fly with SeaPort frequently, opening a corporate account is a great way to save even more money and time. When you open an account, you’ll get a personalized login name and password to make bookings right from our website. You’ll enjoy 5%, 10% or 15% savings, depending on the account you have. There are no monthly service fees or handling charges, and accounts never expire. Read on to learn about each of our programs.

There are three account types, each with different benefits. All  SeaPort accounts operate as debit accounts, so tickets are paid for from the balance deposited into the account.


$1,000 to $4,999

Each Silver Account is opened with a 5% bonus. If you put $1,000 into an account, we open it with $1,050. A Silver Account allows the holder to purchase tickets online using the account to pay for airfare, retrieve booking history and accounting information at Any service fees are charged to the account.


$5,000 to $19,999

Along with the benefits of Silver Accounts, each Gold Account is opened with a 10% bonus. If you put $10,000 into an account, we open it with $11,000. We add 10% anytime your account is reloaded with at least $5,000. Gold Account Members are exempt from baggage fees and change fees, and Portland parking fees can be charged to the account.


$20,000 and above

Along with the benefits of Silver and Gold Accounts, each Platinum Account is opened with a 15% bonus applied toward the balance. If you wish to put $20,000 in an account, we open it with $23,000. We add 15% anytime you reload an account with more than $20,000.

If you’re interested in setting up a Value Account, we have an Account Coordinator that would be happy to help you!  Please contact Cameron Pahl at

Turtles visit JFK for the day

NYC airport invaded by turtles, delaying flights

 Associated Press

NEW YORK — Aviation authorities say dozens of flights were delayed at New York’s Kennedy airport after about 150 turtles crawled onto the tarmac in search of beaches to lay their eggs.

The parade of slow-moving diamondback terrapins began about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says that soon there were so many on one runway and nearby taxiways that controllers were forced to move departing flights to another runway.

The FAA says flight delays were averaging about 30 minutes.

The turtle migration happens every year at Kennedy. The airport is built on the edge of Jamaica Bay and a federally protected park. In late June or early July the turtles heave themselves out of the bay and head toward a beach to lay their eggs.
