Airlines and air charter services serving Port Angeles and Port Townsend are returning to normal schedules.
Federal officials on Friday reopened the skies to most private planes which had been grounded with commercial airlines following Tuesday’s terrorist attacks.

“Things will be as normal as possible here within about a week, and normal will be different,” said Jeff Robb, manager of William R. Fairchild International Airport in Port Angeles.
Under new FAA-mandated security rules, vehicles left unattended at Fairchild and at Jefferson County International Airport will be towed, and public address systems now repeatedly warn that unattended luggage will be confiscated.This full report appears in the Sunday Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
