The Imperial County Board of Supervisors held off on taking action regarding new services at the Imperial Regional Airport.
The item was continued until next week as the county was given an extended deadline to respond to the federal government, said County Executive Officer Ralph Cordova. The requested action was to submit a waiver about the size of the plane.SeaPort Airlines, which currently flies out of Oregon, Washington, Tennessee and Missouri, has proposed two flights to San Diego and one to Phoenix, according to a letter to the Board from the county executive office. The airline has a nine seat, single-engine plane, and wants to waive the requirement for having at least 15 seats and two-engines.
The county has until Nov.4 to respond to the waiver, Cordova said.
