(August 15, 2011) – With the Pendleton Round-Up right around the corner, SeaPort Airlines today announced the addition of one daily round trip flight between Pendleton and Portland from Tuesday, September 13th through Friday, September 16th.  Furthermore, from August 16th-September 18th, 2011, SeaPort will award all passengers that “wrangle” a flight to and from Pendleton with double points through their FlyerFlex customer rewards program*.

“We’ve been Pendleton’s hometown airline for three years, and know that Round-Up is such a major part of the Pendleton culture.” said Rob McKinney—President, SeaPort Airlines.  “We couldn’t help but join in the fun.”

 SeaPort currently operates four daily round trips between Pendleton and Portland five days a week, and two on Sundays.  Nonstop Pendleton-Boise flights are offered three days a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. An additional flight will be scheduled to depart Portland at 9:20 am & depart Pendleton at 3:15 pm during Round-Up week to facilitate additional travelers.

“This additional commitment of seats is a fantastic recognition of a special event that happens this time in Pendleton every year. We sincerely appreciate the cooperation and service that we always receive from SeaPort,” said Larry Dalrymple—Airport Manager, Eastern Oregon Regional Airport.  “We encourage all passengers to take advantage of the additional benefits being afforded with the FlyerFlex Program.”
