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.
