Passenger air service one step closer to returning to Klamath Falls

0316 klamath falls airportKlamath Falls, Ore. — The Senate Commerce Committee voted to attach the bipartisan Treating Small Airports with Fairness Act, or TSA Fairness Act, to the upcoming FAA Re-authorization Bill.

The legislation would restore TSA screening to the Crater Lake-Klamath Regional Airport and other airports that lost service after 2013 that have a guarantee from a commercial airline to resume service within one year.

Alaska based PenAir announced an agreement last year to serve the airport, but can’t begin service without the TSA. The airport has been without commercial passenger service since June of 2014.
