SeaPort Airlines (Portland, Oregon) has received approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to start an alternate service pattern for air service from Great Bend, Kansas.

Kansas City International Airport currently offers flights to 43 nonstop destinations operated by 11 airlines. The new nonstop service to Kansas City International will also connect with Alaska Airlines flights out of Kansas City to Seattle/Tacoma and beyond, which can be booked as a single itinerary under the SeaPort Airlines interline and e-ticketing agreement with Alaska Airlines by December 1.

The route will be operated with Cessna 208B Grand Caravans.

Previously SeaPort Airlines began service on June 16, 2014 from Great Bend, Kansas (Great Bend Municipal Airport) to Wichita (Wichita Mid-Continent Airport) and Kansas City (Kansas City International Airport). The carrier was recently awarded the Essential Air Service (EAS) contract to provide service at Great Bend by the United States Department of Transportation, replacing Great Lakes Aviation.

However SeaPort is expected to drop EAS service to Athens, GA, Jackson, TN, and El Centro, CA after an audit by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) under the new EAS rules set by Congress.
