Omni Air at SeaTac airport

Sat Sep 07, 2019 6:59 pm

Hi,
From time to time I have seen Omni Air 767’s at SeaTac airport and a few times at Boeing field. What does Omni Air do at Seattle? What is the point of its routes there? At first I thought it might be a cargo airline but I saw it at the S gates using a jet bridge.
Thank you!

Military charters. You know, Omni's primary source of income...

The the freedom bird SEA-OKO-DNA-OSN. It’s how our military gets to where they need to go ..on the east coast they use BWI

FedEx even used to fly this route with when they took over flying tigers .. was cool to see FedEx flight attendants. They also flew LAX-OKO

Yes. On at least two occasions, I've seen the young men (mostly) in the terminal at the southern most ticket counter for these flights. ALL with very short - that is, freshly trimmed - hair.

Have passed through or to SEA fairly often in recent years.
