CRESCENT CITY - It’s no secret at this point. A new airline is looking to bring its services to the Del Norte County Airport. Alaska Air Group is in talks with airport staff and the Department of Transportation about the possibility of coming into the Crescent City hub.

Currently Sky West provides service to the airport, but that contract ends in 2015.

Airport Manager Matthew Leitner says air service providers have until January 15 to submit proposals. The community will then have 30 days to weigh in on the possibility of Alaska Air or another air service coming in. Another future change the airport is considering is moving the connection hub from San Francisco to Portland, Oregon.
