Noticed this on their Facebook page:

(January 11, 2012) – SeaPort Airlines today announced that it will increase flight frequencies at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in time for the peak summer travel season.

SeaPort previously announced that it would begin service at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport on January 15, 2012, offering three daily nonstop roundtrip flights between North Bend/Coos Bay and Portland Monday through Friday, and one roundtrip flight on Sunday. Effective April 1, 2012, a second roundtrip flight will be added on Sundays. Beginning on May 20, a fourth roundtrip will be added Monday through Friday along with a roundtrip on Saturdays. The new flight frequencies will be available through the peak summer months to September 8, 2012.

Looks like they added a mid-morning departure from PDX.... this will hopefully be promising....

I'm actually shocked at the exposure SeaPort has been getting over the last 2 weeks due to "changing schedules" and "destinations" so frequently. I'[m half-inclined to remind these people that they are lucky to have any service at all at these EAS-like cities.

Really? Ask the people of Newport or Astoria or even Salem, they don't sound like they are lucky at all. The second all the funds or breaks provided to SeaPort, so they would provide air service, to these small and poor communities dried up SeaPort disappeared, not lucky at all. Add IDA then EAT & YKM in a few months. Lots of places dumped millions of dollars into SeaPort's pockets and have nothing to show for it now, robbed more than lucky. IMO

Thing is, there's hundreds of towns like this across the nation with the same problems yet their news isn't blasting across the airwaves as if SeaPort (or carrier X) was somehow to blame.

SeaPort is to blame, according to a local Portland news station report, SeaPort providied 5 days notice when they pulled out of Salem, not even fulfilling their contract with Newport for what they had been paid for.

Not having a viable business plan nor efficient aircraft, then making promises they could never have have made profitably work. SeaPort barely got any advertising going then they'd pull out of any of the aforementioned cities, so to some extent, it's their fault they didn't have as many travellers as possible, which may or may not have made those routes profitable.

I do hope that OTH's exerience is better than the rest. And I see OTH as a better prospect in releation to it's size and proximity to another large catchment area.
