The ACV Airport Advisory Committee gathered for its monthly meeting Tuesday but did not have a quorum so no actions were taken. There was talk about the new service between Klamath Falls and Portland by Peninsula Air , which commences November 2. Bookings will be made through Alaska Air.
Peninsula, or Pen Air, has been flying in SE Alaska for years but recently began service outside the State and will fly the Crescent City -Portland route starting in September. ACV staff at the meeting suggested Pen’s interest in Klamath Falls was due to the wide separation between KF and Crescent City. Does Pen need to be at ACV? Emily Jacobs advised the Pen folks will be visiting soon. She also advised that the passenger count at ACV is up 6.5% from a year ago.
