Last month a judge in Oregon ordered SeaPort Airlines’ Chapter 11 bankruptcy to be converted to Chapter 7 liquidation. SeaPort has effectively shut its doors, grounding all flights and ending its reorganization efforts.
The Portland-based airline attempted to reorganize after filing for Chapter 11 in February, but it lost a key contract and a line of credit, so could not continue in business.
“This is a very sad day for our employees, shareholders, and the communities we serve,” SeaPort Airlines President Tim Sieber said in a statement on the company’s official website. “I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the employee team that I have been honored to lead and who delivered industry leading operational performance. While we made great strides, a successful financial reorganization did appear possible and we were forced to make the difficult decision to cease operations.”
SeaPort Airlines opened in 2008 and took its name from the Portland to Seattle route that it flew regularly. Since opening, it expended to Memphis, Tennessee, and added other new routes using Cessna 208 Grand Caravan turboprop aircraft.
