SeaPort Airlines, a Portland, Or.-based company founded by Portland investors John Beardsley, Tom Carrollo and Kent Craford, is the first airline to fully mitigate its jet fuel consumption. In June they launched a new regularly scheduled commercial air service between Seattle and Portland, offering multiple flights a day.
SeaPort donates the equivalent of “carbon offset” funds by joining in a partnership with Vancouver, Wa.-based Columbia Land Trust to help preserve forestland in the Pacific Northwest.
SeaPort Airlines operates one of the most efficient aircraft’s in commercial aviation, the Pilatus PC-12, a Swiss-built pressurized turboprop that burns only 51 gallons of jet fuel per Seattle-Portland flight. Making it possible for SeaPort to control jet fuel costs and lessen the environmental impact.
Not only is it an environmentally friendly airline, they have reduced the hassles of traveling to a minimum by offering the following –
- Flights in and out of Boeing Field, just 6 miles from downtown Seattle.
- Own private terminal in the business aviation area at PDX.
- No TSA hassles at either airport.
- Arrive 15 minutes before your flight, even with check-in bags.
- Valet parking right in front in Portland, and free parking just steps from the plane at Boeing Field.
Along with everything else, SeaPort Airlines offers Charter Flights, Freight, Hotel & Car help, and monthly seat commitment programs. If you live in the Pacific Northwest try out SeaPort Airlines for your next business trip.
