Another airline will be grounded as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Pacific Coastal Airlines President Quentin Smith announced yesterday (March 19) the company is temporarily suspending all Pacific Coastal network operations by the end of Tuesday (March 24) due to the "rapidly deteriorating situation."
It hopes to be wheels up again as early as May 3, 2020.
"I wish again to stress that this is a TEMPORARY MEASURE only, and that we will continue to monitor the situation with the aim of re-establishing operations and recalling employees as soon as we are able," Smith said in a release.
"I recognize the impact this will have on the people and the communities we so proudly serve, but given the rapidly deteriorating situation and uncertain future, we have no other choice but to take this drastic step to ensure the health and safety of our employees and the public, and the financial survival of our airline."
