PenAir is in Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls, Ore. — The Crater Lake/Klamath Regional Airport wrapped up a party Friday night.

PenAir officials held a ‘meet and greet’ this Friday afternoon at the airport terminal.

The airline will begin offering passenger service between Klamath Falls and Portland twice a day on weekdays, and once on weekends, beginning October 5th.

“We operate turbo prop 340 aircraft, which are 30 seat configurations. We have in flight service and we have the lavatory. So we’re perfect sized for communities of the Klamath Falls size in getting in and out and providing a service for the community,” said PenAir Vice President Missy Roberts.

Klamath Falls has been without passenger service since June of 2014.

Klamath Falls and PenAir signed an agreement in July of last year, but the TSA wasn’t willing to provide security screening.

Federal lawmakers passed bills in the spring requiring the TSA to return.
