SeaPort Airlines announced it will discontinue all scheduled service to destinations in California and Mexico as of 11:59 p.m. Jan. 15 and Kansas and Missouri as of 11:59 p.m. Jan. 16.

The company was forced to take action because of the impact on SeaPortís business and operations following the effects of the shortage of airline pilots in the United States. Stations will be closed and service is to be ceased at each of the following cities: Sacramento; Visalia, Calif.; Burbank, Calif.; San Diego; Imperial, Calif; San Felipe (Mexico); Salina; Great Bend; and Kansas City, Mo.

Customers with reservations for affected routes will be issued a full refund for unused tickets, and should call (888) 573-2767 if they have additional questions about their refund.

Current service in the Pacific Northwest, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas will be unaffected and are expected to operate as scheduled and without disruption. Customers with reservations for flights in these regions will continue to receive the quality customer service and airline experience that they have come to expect from SeaPort Airlines.
