On 20 September 2016, SeaPort Airlines, Inc. announced it was ceasing all operations and made a motion to convert bankruptcy proceedings from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7 of the US bankruptcy code.
Tim Sieber, president of SeaPort Airlines, stated, “This is a very sad day for our employees, shareholders, and the communities we serve. I would like extend my heartfelt appreciation to the employee team that I have been honoured to lead and who delivered industry leading operational performance. While we made great strides, a successful financial reorganisation did appear possible and we were forced to make the difficult decision to cease operations.”
Customers with tickets on SeaPort Airlines that were purchased with MasterCard or VISA credit cards may apply for a refund through their credit card company. Customers using other credit cards must inquire at their respective credit card companies about refunds.
According to other sources, Boutique Air of San Francisco is to replace SeaPort’s Pendleton–Portland service with 21 flights per week between the two destinations.
