(December 29, 2011) – SeaPort Airlines today announced that it will launch new service between Yakima (Yakima Air Terminal) and Wenatchee (Pangborn Memorial Airport) in Washington and Portland, Oregon beginning March 1, 2012.
The new service will include three daily nonstop round-trip flights between Yakima to Portland Monday through Friday, one nonstop flight from Yakima to Portland on Saturday, and one return nonstop flight from Portland to Yakima on Sunday. All flights from Portland to Yakima will continue to Wenatchee after a brief stop. The same pattern will be operated on return flights.
According to the airline, the flight schedule will allow travelers from Wenatchee and Yakima to complete a full day of business in Portland and return home the same evening, eliminating the expense of a hotel overnight and time away from family and the office. Portland travelers will be afforded the same opportunity to conduct same-day trips to Yakima and Wenatchee.
To kick-off the new service, SeaPort is offering an introductory fare of $69* each way between both cities and Portland. The introductory fare will be available for purchase until February 29, 2012 for travel through March 31, 2012. Seats are limited and other restrictions may apply. See http://www.SeaPortAirlines.com for details. Additionally, through March 31 all members of SeaPort’s FlyerFlex™ loyalty program will earn double credit on all flights to and from Yakima and Wenatchee. Following the introductory period, fares between Portland and Yakima will range from $89* to $169* and fares between Portland and Wenatchee will range from $89* to $179*.
Flights will be available for purchase on January 1, 2012 at http://www.SeaPortAirlines.com, in all major GDSs, and online travel sites. Customers traveling to and from Portland will enjoy the convenience of SeaPort’s private terminal at Portland International Airport that offers comfortable seating, complimentary coffee, tea, hot cider, and world-famous Voodoo Doughnuts that are all removed from the crowds and long-lines of the main terminal. Complimentary shuttle service is provided between SeaPort’s terminal and the main airline terminal.
