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. The new service will replace current scheduled service to Wichita Mid-Continent Airport with nonstop service to Kansas City International Airport. This service pattern will be implemented on Sunday, November 9, and will include two daily round trip flights Monday – Friday, and one round trip flight on both Saturday and Sunday.

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.

Southwest Airlines lands in Wichita, Kansas

Southwest Airlines (Dallas) officially landed in Wichita, Kansas.  Southwest’s first flight arrived at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport on Sunday, June 2, and the airline will offer nonstop service to Dallas (Love Field), Chicago (Midway), and Las Vegas.

Southwest has fully converted all flying from its wholly-owned subsidiary, AirTran Airways, over to Southwest, which previously offered three daily nonstop flights between Wichita and Atlanta.  With the introduction of Southwest’s all-Boeing 737 fleet to the market, passenger seat availability increases by 112 percent (over AirTran’s Boeing 717), an equivalent of 2,700 seats per week of additional low fares.

Southwest’s Wichita Service:

  • Two daily nonstop flights between Wichita and Dallas Love Field
  • Two daily nonstop flights between Wichita and Chicago Midway
  • One daily nonstop flight between Wichita and Las Vegas
