New Air Service Expected to Four Arkansas Cities

SeaPort Airlines is planning to begin serving four Arkansas cities from Memphis International in October. El Dorado, Harrison, Hot Springs, and Jonesboro will be accessible via three daily round-trip flights Monday through Friday and a reduced number on weekends.

The flights will be served using a nine-passenger Pilatus PC-12 turbo-prop aircraft that will give passengers a private-jet feel. This smaller aircraft is the perfect fit for the size of the four Arkansas communities. Passengers will board and disembark the aircraft through Signature Flight Support’s fixed base facilities at 2988 Winchester Rd instead of the airport’s terminal building.

SeaPort is promising no lines to wait in. Passengers only need to arrive 15 minutes ahead of their departure time and will not go through security screening. Some advanced-booked tickets will be priced as low as $49.

This will be the first service for SeaPort Airlines outside the Pacific Northwest region where they are headquartered and serve five cities. For more information on SeaPort visit www.seaportair.com.
