The U.S. Department of Transportation has announced the selection of SeaPort Airlines as the new air service provider for Salina, Kan.
Service to Salina from Kansas City, Mo., will start as early as April 19, with three daily round-trip flights Sunday through Friday.
Passengers flying SeaPort Airlines can park on site like before, arrive just 20 minutes before departure, even with checked bags, and not deal with the hassles of waiting in line. Once customers arrive in Kansas City (MCI), SeaPort's shuttle van can transport customers to the main terminal for connecting flights. Ground transportation partners with rental cars, taxis and town cars can also be arranged prior to departing Salina.
SeaPort Airlines operates 115 daily scheduled flights during the weekdays in five Northwest cities, including Astoria, five Mid-South cities, seven Southeast Alaska cities via Wings of Alaska. SeaPort Airlines operates Swiss-built Pilatus PC-12s, a pressurized turbo-prop aircraft.
Seaport is also bidding on service to McCook,?Neb., and surrounding areas.
Tickets can be purchased at (www.SeaPortAirlines.com) or by calling (888) 573-2767.
