(Coos County, OR) – Passengers arrived Tuesday at the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend signaling the start of daily commercial air service to and from San Francisco International Airport (SFO). United Express operated by Skywest serves the airport with flights to SFO year-round. The expanded service to seven days a week gives passengers more options for connections through spring, summer, and fall. Service will again be expanded on May 7th with non-stop flights to Denver International Airport (DEN) on Sundays and Wednesdays. The Denver route will be served by an Embraer 175, a 78-seat jet, with first-class and coach-class seating and extra cargo capacity. Each seat is next to a window or aisle.
The Coos County Airport District (CCAD) owns and operates the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport. There are 1000 Special Districts in the State of Oregon. Special districts were established by state legislation to provide critical services that cities or counties would otherwise be unable to provide to the communities they serve. There are 34 different categories of special districts in Oregon. CCAD celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and is the only Airport Special District in the state. It consists of 619 landside and airside acres and leases over 33 commercial facilities that, combined with those tenants, employ over 600 personnel.
