|United Express To Add Flights In June|
The Aviation Division has been in discussions with SkyWest about increasing service to ACV to mitigate the recent departure of Horizon Airlines. Starting in June, United Express will be adding flights, with one additional departure and arrival on weekdays. In addition, on Saturdays, there will be two additional departures and one additional arrival.
The Division and its community partners continue to engage with both the existing carrier and potential new carriers regarding service at the airport.

|Earn Airline Miles While Parking At ACV|
Republic Parking System and Thanks Again, LLC have joined forces to enable Humboldt County regional travelers to automatically earn airline miles from six major air carriers when they park at the Arcata/Eureka Airport.
Consumer enrollment in the program is Free, Quick and Secure. Simply register any credit or debit card at www.thanksagain.com/republic. Customers can register up to five different cards.
"Republic Parking System welcomes the addition of the Thanks Again Traveler Loyalty Program as a value-added service to our parking operation at the Arcata/Eureka Airport," said Bob Linehart, Executive Vice President, Republic Parking System.
To qualify to earn miles, enrolled members must pay for on-airport parking with their registered credit or debit card. From April 1, 2011 through June 30, 2011, enrolled travelers earn 1 mile for every $1 spent.
These airline miles are above and beyond any miles that consumers may already earn on affinity credit or debit reward cards they register in the Thanks Again Traveler Loyalty Program.
