SEATTLE – SeaPort Airlines has started offering eight round-trips a day between Portland and Seattle.
The new airline launched by Portland investors started the route Monday, featuring a downtown-to-downtown connection for business travelers.
The airline flies out of Boeing Field in Seattle, rather than Sea-Tac Airport, and its own terminal adjacent to Portland International Airport.
Passengers ride in a nine-seat Swiss-built P-12 normally used as a corporate plane. It has no lavatory or flight attendant for the 40-minute flight.
The fare is $149 round trip this month as a promotion, then it goes up to $149 each way.
