[Audio] Coordinator chats about LA flights starting this summer; Top stories from last week

Humboldt Last Week is a way to hear highlights from Humboldt’s last week a news. It’s available on iTunes, SoundCloud, top podcast platforms, and at kymkemp.com

In the latest episode of Humboldt Last Week (12:48): Last week it was announced that for the first time in around seven years our airport will have a direct flight to Los Angeles. At least for a year, United Airlines will begin service between ACV and LAX on June 7.

“There will be specials for sure as we get closer to the launch so definitely watch out for those promotional sales,” said Humboldt County Aviation Program Coordinator Emily Jacobs.

In the podcast Jacobs discusses what it will take for the flight to remain long-term, the top benefits we could see from having an LA flight, price expectations, our airport’s name, the possibility of additional destinations, and much more.

The interview begins at 12:48.
