PORT ANGELES: Horizon Air, other companies not planning increased service –


PORT ANGELES — With Harbor Air no longer operating regular passenger flight service, Fairchild International Airport is looking for a company to pick up the slack.

Harbor Air’s decision to ground itself last week because of financial difficulties cuts in half the number of flights arriving and departing Port Angeles for Seattle each day.

Until last week, Harbor Air had been flying four round trips between Port Angeles and Boeing Field in south Seattle.

Prior to March, the airline had flown to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, but it was booted out of Sea-Tac in March for failing to pay $100,000 in back rent.
