Northwest Sky Ferry acquires San Juan Airlines assets

Change is in the air.

Northwest Sky Ferry and San Juan Airlines have merged flight operations and in May became the new San Juan Airlines. The two airlines have a long history of serving the San Juan Islands and Pacific Northwest.

Since taking over Northwest Sky Ferry in 2009, owners Skip and Katie Jansen set course to adopt an effective “customer-first” policy inspired by their own experience with the airline long before they took over.

“This acquisition will keenly position us to expand our flight schedule, accommodate larger parties, and offer more destinations to better serve our customers’ needs,” Northwest Sky Ferry President Skip Jansen said.

San Juan Airlines offers daily scheduled, charter and scenic flights serving the San Juan Islands, Bellingham, Anacortes, Port Angeles, Point Roberts, Seattle, British Columbia and beyond.

In Bellingham, the new San Juan Airlines will be flying out of the former Northwest Sky Ferry facility on Mitchell Way. In Anacortes, Friday Harbor and in Eastsound, the airline will continue using the facilities that belonged to the former incarnation of San Juan Airlines. Friday Harbor and Eastsound will be equipped with courtesy telephones available to connect directly to the airline’s customer service agents.

“We remain committed to providing each of our guests with safe, simple and exceptional air service,” San Juan Airlines co-owner Katie Jansen said.
