• Pacific Airlines Launches

    On January 1st, 2013, Pacific Airlines was finally launched after more than three years of testing and evaluation. "The airline is a compilation of a number of successful ideas from other airlines, and is meant to replace Air Fresno" CEO Peter McKay stated. Air Fresno, an airline with a 15 year, award winning history has slumped lately because of its regional nature, over the years it has suffered closures because of lack of time or interest. "With Pacific Airlines we have expanded the general idea of Air Fresno, allowing us to address a greater interest in the western United States". McKay's other airline, the Austin based Texas Airways, will be worked into a code share with Pacific Airlines in the near future.

    Pacific Airlines currently offers 82 daily flights to 22 cities with flights as short as 40 minutes and as along as 4 hours. Visit Pacific Airlines at www.flypacair.com.

      Somewhat, there have been a number of inspirations for this project, and Microsoft's Pacifica coloring was indeed one. For me to list all of the rest would take up most of this column, rest assured that I am appreciative of the VA hobby as a whole over the last 17 years for the chance to launch this airline.

      Simple, straightforward, no nonsense v.a. by the looks of it - I wish them well as they could be on to a winner with their apparent set-up
