PenAir is new carrier for Crescent City airport

The Border Coast Regional Airport Authority Board on Thursday selected PenAir as the new airline carrier for the Crescent City airport.

 After a presentation from two of the bidders and the consulting firm that guided the airport through the process of seeking a new carrier, the board was unanimous in its decision to recommend that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) select PenAir to carry Crescent City’s Essential Air Service contract.

Which airline will take over area skies after SkyWest's contract ends is up to the DOT. 

Skywest currently has no scheduled flights in or out of Crescent City after April 6, though the DOT is expected to issue a hold-in order March 18. PenAir has proposed making its first flight to Portland from Crescent City Sept. 15. 

A letter of recommendation signed by BCAA Chair David Finnigan will be bundled with letters from the public and sent to the DOT Friday morning.

The public comment period will continue through March 11. The airline proposals are online at flycrescentcity.com/category/public-documents.
