Arizona’s Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (Gateway Airport) is all set to welcome a new nonstop service to McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, California from 15 November.
The new link will be operated by California Pacific Airlines (CPA), making it the third airline to announce a new service from Gateway Airport in the last month.
“We are delighted to announce this addition to our inaugural schedule,” remarked CPA’s EVP and COO, mickey Bowman. “Similar to our base in Carlsbad, the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport offers no hassle, easy access to the valley of the sun from a fantastic facility in the Phoenix East Valley.”
The decision to launch the new route follows passenger demand from travellers in the Greater Phoenix area, with the Carlsbad/ San Diego region one of the most frequently requested destinations.
CPA will offer six weekly departures on the new route using 50-seat Embraer 145 regional jet aircraft.
Commenting on the new service, A.A.E’s executive director, J. Brian O’Neill said: “Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is pleased to add California Pacific Airlines to its growing list of domestic and international air carriers.” He added: “The Carlsbad/ San Diego area is an extremely popular destination for residents across Greater Phoenix. We are confident that this new nonstop service on California Pacific Airlines will be very successful.”
