KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Commercial air service is returning to Klamath Falls.

PenAir, a regional airline based in Anchorage, Alaska, will fly to Portland twice a day Monday through Friday, with once-a-day service on weekends.

The Klamath County Chamber of Commerce announced the new service on Monday following promises of support from the city and local businesses.

The chamber says flights will be timed to give travelers convenient connections in on major airlines in Portland. PenAir will fly Saab 340 twin-engine turboprop aircraft.

Service is set to begin in the fall after the Transportation Security Administration sets up security procedures.

KFLS-AM reports the Klamath Falls airport has been without commercial air service since June 2014, when United Airlines regional partner SkyWest left the market.
