A commuter airline based in Portland, Ore., has announced it will begin serving San Diego on March 1.
SeaPort Airlines will fly five daily nonstops between Lindbergh Field and Imperial County Airport. There also will be two each on Saturdays and Sundays. The flights are scheduled to last 45 minutes.
“We're very pleased to be adding Imperial County Airport and San Diego International to our growing route map,” said Rob McKinney, the president of SeaPort Airlines.
The company is recruiting customer service staff for both airports. It also said it will offer shuttle bus service from the Commuter Terminal to Terminals 1 and 2 at Lindbergh Field so passengers can make connections.
An introductory sale fare of $39 each way is available for purchase through March 31 for the San Diego-Imperial County flights, good for flights through June 30.
The 31-year-old carrier offers flights to 20 cities in Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas, flying Cessna 207, Cessna Caravan and Pilatus PC-12 propeller aircraft.
