Start-up California Pacific Airlines has announced plans for service from the McClellan-Palomar airport near Carlsbad, California, on November 1, reports FlightGlobal, a website that tracks the airline industry.
The airline will begin operations 12-times weekly flights to San Jose, and four-times weekly to Reno with 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft, the airline said in a media release.
It will add three-times weekly service to Las Vegas two weeks later, on November 15.
"Today's announcement marks the culmination of a multi-year effort that will bring significant convenience in air travel between San Diego's North County and the top western-region destinations," says Ted Vallas, chairman of California Pacific, in a statement. "Our initial set of cities will address the needs of both business and leisure travelers from nearby McClellan-Palomar airport."
FlightGlobal, says no airline is currently offering scheduled air service from Carlsbad. Elite Airways was the last carrier to serve the airport with flights to Las Vegas that operated from September 2017 through April 2018, according to FlightGlobal.
