HARRISON, Ark. (AP) - A regional airline that provided flights for three small airports in Arkansas is ceasing operations as it faces bankruptcy liquidation.

Portland, Oregon-based SeaPort Airlines Inc. announced Tuesday that it’s converting its bankruptcy proceedings from a Chapter 11 reorganization to a Chapter 7 liquidation. The airline said it ceased all flights Tuesday night.

In Arkansas, the airline offered flights from Harrison, Hot Springs and El Dorado to Memphis, Tennessee; and from Hot Springs and El Dorado to Houston. SeaPort also provided air service within Oregon.

Boone County Regional Airport Manager Judy McCutcheon tells the Harrison Daily Times (https://bit.ly/2cCVh2m ) that she’s hopeful another airline can be secured for the airport in Harrison. She called the loss of SeaPort “terrible news for our community.”
