“SeaPort Airlines, Inc. is  a scheduled commuter airline headquartered in Portland, Oregon.

 Founded in Juneau, Alaska in 1982 as Wings of Alaska, for over two decades flights were operated entirely within the Southeast Alaska region. In 2008, Wings of Alaska was purchased by SeaPort Air Group, LLC and the headquarters moved to Portland, Oregon. Shortly after, flight operations were launched in the Pacific Northwest with a business strategy of operating a shuttle service between Seattle and Portland (hence the name “SeaPort”) that offered private terminals and the avoidance of TSA screening lines; it offered business travelers a strong contrast to crowded, large airport terminals. The hallmark of SeaPort’s service was the personalized customer service that quickly became known as “The SeaPort Experience.
