Seaport Airlines Launches Memphis to Jackson Service

Seaport Airlines has launched commercial airline service from Memphis to McKeller-Sipes Regional Airport in Jackson, Tennessee.

The airline offers two daily round trip flights Monday through Friday and one flight on Saturday and Sunday using a 9-passenger Cessna Caravan turbo-prop aircraft.   This model aircraft is used by many regional airlines for short-haul flights and offers a smaller aircraft with a personal business aircraft feel.

Seaport has outfitted their Caravans with comfortable leather seats and generous-size windows, as well as a roomy cargo pod that allows a free baggage allowance of up to 50 lbs. of checked luggage (plus a carry-on) for each passenger on this particular route.

The flights arrive and depart at Signature Flight Support’s fixed base facilities at 2988 Winchester Rd., across the street from the airport terminal building.  For passengers connecting to other commercial flights, Seaport provides a van to shuttle passengers between Signature Flight Support and Memphis International Airport’s terminal building.

The airline first began serving the Memphis market in 2008, with flights to four locations in Arkansas: El Dorado, Harrison, Hot Springs and Jonesboro.  The Jonesboro service was recently discontinued due to low demand in that market. 

The schedule for the new Jackson, TN, service is:
