New Pacific Airlines, an Anchorage-based carrier that began operations in 2023, is cutting all of its scheduled flights. The airline’s inaugural flight was from Ontario, Calif. to Las Vegas before eventually operating to cities including Reno and Nashville. At its peak, the carrier only operated four scheduled routes.

The carrier ended scheduled service with only one route from Ontario to Nashville. Other routes such as Ontario to Las Vegas were suspended earlier this year.

New Agreement

Last week, Elevate Aviation Group and New Pacific Airlines signed an agreement to bring the carrier more opportunities in the private aviation space. The airline’s new agreement with Elevate Aviation Group is planned to allow the carrier to operate more charter flights.

The company specializes in chartering artists, sports teams, public figures, and more. “At New Pacific Airlines, we are dedicated to redefining the standards of aviation services. Our partnership with Elevate Aviation Group is a testament to our commitment to providing unparalleled travel experiences. Together, we will set new benchmarks for excellence in the private aviation sector,” New Pacific chief Rob McKinney said in a press release.

Future Plans

While the carrier has no firm plans to continue scheduled flights, a spokesperson said it is not off the table. Plans to operate scheduled flights may return in the future, they shared.
