Bellingham International Airport Wins Another Award

Bellingham International Airport was honored at an annual conference of Allegiant Airlines with an “Above and Beyond” award for cutting operating costs and maintaining a low-cost transportation facility.

Port Commissioner Dan Robbins attended the conference to accept the award from Allegiant’s president and CEO, Maurice J Gallagher Jr. “We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts to reduce operating costs at Bellingham Airport” said Port Commissioner Dan Robbins. “Our airline partners, the business community and leisure travelers appreciate the affordability and convenience of Whatcom County’s high quality, low-cost airport.”

In addition to Allegiant’s “Above and Beyond” award, Bellingham Airport recently scored the highest customer satisfaction rating for any airport in the nation.

“This is a remarkable accomplishment and we are delighted to have received such appreciation from our valued customers,” said Sunil Harmon, Port of Bellingham Director of Aviation. “We recognize we are in the people business and we have set very high standards of service at every level of customer contact.”

Passengers flying through Bellingham consistently identify inexpensive flights, cheap parking, short security lines and a low-stress atmosphere as important contributors to their overall satisfaction.

Allegiant Airlines offers non-stop flights from Bellingham to six destinations including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland/San Francisco, Phoenix/Mesa and Palm Springs. Allegiant was founded in 1997 and has rapidly grown to be one of most popular low-cost airlines in the United States.
