PORTLAND, ORE. (June 23, 2014) – SeaPort Airlines submitted its application today to the U.S. Department of Transportation to start service from San Diego, California in the United States to San Felipe, Baja California in Mexico. San Felipe would be SeaPort’s first destination in Mexico, expanding its current network of 23 airports across nine states. Service to San Felipe will also require approval by the Mexico Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC). SeaPort will file the requisite application with Mexico authorities shortly.
“SeaPort Airlines is committed to providing more destination options to our customers in Southern California,” said Rob McKinney, President of SeaPort Airlines “We’ve had a flood of requests from customers for flights to San Felipe and we’ve been listening. Our applications filed today are a first step toward our plans to bring direct air service between San Felipe and San Diego this fall.”
Service on the new route is slated to begin in November 2014 and will initially operate four times each week. All flights will be operated with 9-passsenger Cessna Caravan aircraft. Flight times and fares will be available on www.seaportairlines.com upon receipt of government approvals.
