Kamloops-Seattle winter flights cancelled


SEATTLE — With fuel prices remaining at record high levels, Horizon Air is cancelling its winter flights to Kamloops, BC. Horizon has provided the flights from Seattle every winter since December 2003.

“Sky high fuel prices. A U.S. economy that’s in the doldrums. In this economic environment, we just couldn’t see how it would be possible to operate these flights profitably this year,” said Dan Russo of Horizon Air.

“I would like to thank the Kamloops Airport, the Kamloops business community and Tourism Sun Peaks for their past support of this service," said Russo.

The Seattle-based airline hopes to resume the flights once economic conditions improve.
